The COVID-19 outbreak has presented extraordinary challenges for artists and arts organizations, with unprecedented loss of revenue from performances, community events, education and professional presentations. The Hamilton Artist Relief Fund is focused on raising and distributing emergency relief funds for artists struggling during this difficult time and providing a curated online platform for local artists to present and perform to a virtual audience. 100% of the donations collected for the Relief Fund will be distributed directly to artists in need. Relief funding for practicing artists in need of support can be accessed through a simple application form. Relief fund amounts start at $100 to a maximum of $1,000 based on individual needs. If you live and work in the arts community in Hamilton, you can apply for support here.
