In response to the COVID 19 Public Health Crisis, The City of Santa Fe Arts and Culture Department’s Culture Connects Coalition (in partnership with Lannan Foundation, Santa Fe Art Institute and Southwest Contemporary has launched as ARTIST RELIEF FUND to provide emergency funding for local artists (in every sense of the word: writers, film workers, visual artists, performance artists, musicians, etc.) to help them during these trying financial times.
It is important to remember that as we have relied on the creative resources of our artists and creative class to make Santa Fe the culturally vibrant community, the time has now come that we return the favor and give back.
All artists residing in Santa Fe County are eligible for funding relief in the amount of $500 each. To date, we have received over $50,000 in donations from many generous members of our community and at this time we ask you to consider the wealth that the creative economy has created for all of us and give back in any way you can afford.
We thank you and our artists for your many contributions!
