The widespread cancellation of group events has already had an immense financial impact on the Bay Area arts community - especially those who rely on gigs to pay their bills. With a projection of gig cancellations for the next 1-3 months, this leaves many experiencing a sudden loss of income. Our goal is to raise sufficient funds for aid in the next month, projecting that the highest need will come at the end of April.
Please help support the Bay Area arts and event production community through contributing to our Emergency Relief Fund.
This Emergency Fund will be distributed to those in the events industry in critical need of living expenses: rent, medication coverage, power and water bills, and other acute needs like childcare.
There will be an application process to ensure that these funds go to those in immediate danger of losing housing and other essential resources. Part of the application will be requesting a copy of applicant's bank statements, list of cancelled gigs, and bill copies.
Thank you so much for your continued support and solidarity. We will get through this together. In these times, I am grateful for the heart and courage of the Bay Area.
