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

A core SafeMUSE mission is advocating for Safe Music Residencies (short term, from two months and more) and Safe Music Havens (2 years) for artists at risk.


Safe Music Havens Initiative is an independent non-partisan and non-profit membership association consisting of members offering persecuted musical artists a safe place to stay and work for an agreed period of time through an agreement with SafeMUSE, for guest musical artists taking part in such a program, and of organizations and other professional legal bodies supporting these activities.
