UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19: Please note that the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC) is not a grantmaking program and is unable to assist artists financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, because we recognize the growing effect that the pandemic is having on artists, we have compiled a growing list of resources for artists affected by COVID-19 and hope that you may find assistance there. Please refer to the "Stories" page to find the list. If you are an artist or cultural practitioner otherwise at risk because of your creative practice, please follow the directions below to contact us.

Please fill out the form to get in touch with us. Submissions are encrypted and ARC understands that your communications are confidential. ARC does not provide direct services, but we will do our best to refer you to organizations that do. You can also find help by exploring our network of resources.

Your message is end-to-end encrypted and will be marked as urgent. You have the option to write this message in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish. Expect a reply within 72 hours.

Guidelines of assistance

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) strengthens applications for asylum in the United States through volunteer health professionals who provide medical evaluations to survivors of human rights violations.


PHR investigates and documents human rights violations, gives voice to survivors and witnesses, and plants seeds of reconciliation by ensuring that perpetrators can be held accountable for their crimes. PHR believes that medical ethics are deeply bound to the protection of human rights. PHR uses its core disciplines – science, medicine, forensics, and public health – to inform its research and investigations and to strengthen the skills of frontline human rights defenders across the world.
