Thanks to the arts services organizations, community leaders and funders for stepping up quickly during this crisis.

Many organizations and funders currently have or are in the process of developing COVID-19 contingency plans and recommendations, for independent artists, creative workers or arts organizations impacted by programs/event cancellations, venue closures, loss of work and revenue. 

To support organizations and individuals across the sector- for the month of May, we have decided to waive the posting fee for organizations experiencing hardship during this time. Please email and we will arrange to get your posting up.

Now is the time to post your remote jobs on the JobBoard and online training, events, call-for-submissions and more on the DiscoveryBoard.

Below is a list of resources that will be updated as we gather more information. Please contact us if you know of any other supports by e-mailing Thank you!
