IMPACT ON THE ART SECTOR

This is the income distribution from 156 fund applicants before Covid-19



ABOUT THE FUND

Our intention for this fund is to provide emergency resources to those at financial risk.


The fund will support artists, musicians and cultural producers from all backgrounds. We currently providing support to the areas of Toronto and Montreal. Depending on how much we raise, we may be able to extend the support to other regions across Canada.
Art is the soul of communities. Artists feed that soul and should be supported by everyone. As we (rightly) practice social distancing during this pandemic we need to remember that there are victims other than patients.

- Donor Laura Brown
 
Art proves its "raison d'être" now more than ever. Imagine having to go through this period of isolation without music, without books, without films and without images. Art carries the human connection that we all need.

As survey applications come in, we will withdraw the funds and send them directly to the individual artists requesting them (the beneficiary).
  • Funds will be split equally each week between everyone who applies for aid.
  • We will be keeping public records of all fund distribution (while maintaining individual privacy) available in a Google Sheet.
  • Funds will go directly to the artists to counter any lost income incurred as a result of any cancelled jobs, gigs, and illnesses.
