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

Admission to the program is by selection only. The Watermill Center uses SlideRoom to gather applications and work samples for its residency program. All material must be submitted via the online portal through SlideRoom. There are NO exceptions.


Artists in Residence share their creative process with the Long Island community through open rehearsals, workshops, and artist talks. The center combines performance and rehearsal sites with working and communal living spaces, as well as access to The Watermill Center Collection of art and artifacts, an extensive reference library, kitchen facilities, and a dormitory. Watermill Center provides local transportation, housing, and work space. Residents are responsible for living expenses and travel to and from Watermill, as well as production expenses such as art materials, art supplies, and equipment rentals, for which Watermill will provide a modest reimbursement.
