This list is specifically designed to serve freelance artists, and those interested in supporting the independent artist community. This includes, but is not limited to, actors, designers, producers, technicians, stage managers, musicians, composers, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, craft artists, teaching artists, dancers, writers & playwrights, photographers, etc.
What this list IS: an aggregated list of FREE resources, opportunities, and financial relief options available to artists of all disciplines.
What this list IS NOT: a place to promote individual artist practices (we love you, but we’re not equipped for that); a place to promote fee for service work; or a place to seek direct emergency funding.
Original resources and inspiration provided by Nicole Brewer, Ann Marie Lonsdale, Quanice Floyd, Tiffany Wilhelm, Brian Herrera, Hannah Fenlon, & Clementine Bordeaux.
If you have resources or upcoming virtual events you’d like to add to this list, please submit them via this form. The administrators of this list (Hannah Fenlon, Ann Marie Lonsdale, Abigail Vega) will review and share your resources with the community!
We encourage you to view the recording of our livestreamed panel conversation (featuring arts lawyers, activists, academics, funders, and more) speaking to topics of direct importance to the individual artist community, which occurred via HowlRound Theatre Commons on March 16 at 8pm ET. Watch the EVENTS section of this page for more from this producing collective.
