A Fund For Under-Resourced Arts and Culture Organizations
South Arts launched recently the South Arts Resilience Fund, a part of the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund. Through this fund, states the announcement, South Arts will provide grants of $30,000 - $100,000 "supporting the long-term resilience of under-resourced, visionary, and impactful" arts and culture organizations across the nine-state primary service area of AL, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, SC, and TN.
The activities that can be supported by the South Arts Resilience Fund are wide in scope, but must address the concept of what an organization needs to do in order to be resilient during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Arts organizations are in uncharted territory and reinventing themselves quickly to deal with the current situations,” said Susie Surkamer, executive director of South Arts. “There is a lot of creativity in figuring out how to share arts experiences remotely. With these funds, we will help organizations learn and grow from this with careful planning and deep investments into the next phase of their work.”
