Village of Arts and Humanities Emergency Gap Fund for Philly’s Black Working Artists

The Village of Arts and Humanities has launched a mutual aid fund designed to be highly accessible to working artists at all levels of experience. To qualify for a one-time grant of $500, artists must identify as Black, reside in Philadelphia, earn money from their craft, and have lost money as a result of the pandemic. The application takes 5 minutes to complete, and once approved, artists will receive the money within 5 days for as long as there are funds to accommodate requests. Priority is given to artists from the 19133 zip code, in light of The Village’s long-term service to the neighborhood. APPLY HERE. DONATE TO SUPPORT THE FUND HERE.
