While we continue to maintain this Artist Resources page, we wanted to share a comprehensive list of COVID-19 grants and resources on the CalArts website, which is updated every Tuesday and Thursday.
Like so many institutions that support artists around the world right now, we at REDCAT are concerned about what this unprecedented moment could mean for our community. Despite the challenges that we are all facing at this moment, we are committed to supporting artists and ensuring that our community remains vibrant and strong.
To that end, we wanted to provide artists with a list of resources available to them at this time. Check back often, as we will continue to update this list as best we can.
