Learn about the many resources available to artists of ALL types to help you recover from the hardships of the COVID-19 lockdown. Get expert answers live to all your questions.
You, artists & creatives, may be eligible for cash and resources to help you recover! Come learn how! This workshop is not art-specific, it is about the COVID resources that are out there available to YOU. Some will be specific for artists, and we will also include information about things that are not artist specific, like the PPP and SBA. Small business stuff, since artists are usually set up as small businesspeople. Plus, some covid grants for artists, but nothing that is predicated on the type of art anyone does.
We are bringing together a group of experts to help you understand how to access these resources. We will provide you with virtual live support and answer as many of your questions as we can. We are partnering with Venture Cafe Miami to present this virtually during their Thursday #VCMVirtual gatherings.
Participating organizations include:
– Artist Relief
– Oolite Arts
– Miami Urban Contemporary Experience
– Guitars Over Guns
– Life Is Art, Inc.
This workshop will include information on artist-specific resources, as well as those that are available to independent contractors, small business people, and solopreneurs. While it is focused on artists, we welcome other creatives. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Your questions are key to this program. We will start with a short group discussion of some specific programs, but we will have plenty of time for you to ask specific questions.
