The coronavirus is decimating the events industry, and while BHMSTR is here to support those organizers who are moving their events online, we recognize that not everyone will be able to do so, or to make a decent living if they are.
Here are links to Birmingham-related COVID-19 focused funds.
BhamStrong — A coalition of public, private and civic leaders and organizations collaborating to serve as Birmingham’s COVID-19 Information and Resource Center.
Artist Relief — Artist Relief is an initiative organized by the Academy of American Poets, Artadia, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, MAP Fund, National YoungArts Foundation, and United States Artists—all small to mid-sized national arts grantmakers—that have come together in this unprecedented moment guided by the understanding that the wellbeing of artists has financial, professional, social, and mental dimensions, and should be fostered with a holistic framework of support.
If you know of any other organizations who are focused on Birmingham-based event organizers/artists/gig-economy workers or just Birmingham in general, please contact us.
