The Hope Journal Artist Fund

Donation protected
What, to you, is the light at the end of the tunnel?

A follow-up companion to The Fear Journal  (a project focused on the collective cathartic experience in response to the events unfolding in 2020), The Hope Journal will reflect on what hope represents on both an individual and collective level, as well as explore complex themes of how the meaning of hope has shifted throughout 2020.

The finished project will premiere January 1st, 2021--to ring in the new year with a renewed sense of purpose and hopefulness for the future.

To further the mission of this journal, we are asking for donations that will directly support the artists involved. COVID-19 has significantly impacted the artistic community--from theatre artists, to visual artists, to writers, to musicians--the list goes on and on. 

Your donation will help these artists continue to create, inspire, and achieve their goals. Whether that's by being able to purchase more art materials, putting food on their table, or paying rent--artists could use an extra boost of security now more than ever. 

The total amount donated will be split evenly among all artists. Since the list is a long one (27 amazing artists!!) and we want to make sure each artist get compensated a minimum of roughly $75/ea. for their work, please share this fundraiser far and wide!
