Windsor-Essex Artist Micro-Grant

Campaign Ends June 30, 2020

#YQGStandStrong #GivingTuesdayNow #BeTheAudience

The current COVID-19 pandemic has the world facing unparalleled financial and social challenges. We are here to help meet the needs of our community of artists in Windsor-Essex. Artists of all career levels and disciplines are working to overcome the barriers created through these times of necessary collective social distancing. 

ACWR recognizes this is a difficult time and if it is within your means, we encourage you to contribute what you can to help ensure no one is left behind as we prepare for a better future. Please consider donating to the Windsor-Essex Artist Micro-Grant.

What made your life worth living when you were healthy, apart from friends and family? Art is how we express our humanity, in all of its dimensions. Through art, we descend to the depths of our human nature, rise to the heights and everything in between. Theater, music, dance, festivals, galleries—all have had to cancel shows, all are hurting. Donations, gift certificates, ticketed online events. Without an audience there is, eventually, no art. You can be that audience.    by Margaret Atwood

Info for Artists:

Artists of any discipline can request a one time grant of $75 for groceries and any essentials. Additionally, this fund is available to all ACWR members, including student members from the School of Creative Arts and St. Clair College.
