A4 Response to COVID-19
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As we face these times of uncertainty, please know that we are here for you and are working to ensure our community is safe and supported.
Information is changing quickly and we are following the latest recommendations by the NYC Department of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
We have instituted a work from home policy for staff, so please reach us via email should you need to be in contact. Amidst the cancellations and closures, we hope you are doing what you can to keep yourselves and your communities healthy.
We will continue to update helpful information as we receive it and have compiled a list of resources to help you manage through these challenging times as well as ensure your own health and safety.
Please take care of yourselves and eachother. We look forward to seeing you once we are on the other side of the pandemic.
City Artist Corps Grants
A4 is proud to partner with New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre, on City Artist Corps Grants.
City Artist Corps Grants, funded by the $25 million New York City Artist Corps recovery initiative announced by Mayor de Blasio and DCLA earlier this year, will distribute one-time $5,000 grants to more than 3,000 artists who will engage the public with arts activities across New York City’s five boroughs beginning this July. The grants, which will be distributed over three award cycles, are intended to support NYC-based working artists who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Check out the full application guidelines.
A4 encourages any New York City-based individual artist to apply. Applications for Cycle 3 will open Tuesday, July 27, at 10:00 AM and will close on Tuesday, August 10 at 10:00 AM.
If you have any questions or need assistance on your application, email CAC@aaartsalliance.org.
A4’s Information Session hosted on Friday, July 16 is now available on YouTube.
