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

RSF membership is required for some form of assistance, including borrowing bulletproof vests, which also requires a 2,000 euro deposit. The RSF website also provides a series of guidebooks for journalists seeking specific kinds of assistance.


RSF supports journalists around the world by reporting violations against press freedoms, mobilizing public and government support for journalists at risk, putting pressure on governments to institute media-friendly policies, and protecting journalists by giving material support such as bulletproof vests, grants, or training. With offices in 10 cities around the world, RSF has the resources to exert political and legal influence both globally and on a local scale.
