Western Avenue Artist Relief Fund

THE WESTERN AVENUE COMMUNITY offers foundational stability to local creatives as a place permanently protected as affordable artist workspace. However, for the over 50% of our artists living on low income, a single life emergency can make even an affordable studio rent payment temporarily impossible. This particularly affects both our younger and elderly artists, and those without access to generational wealth.

THE ARTIST RELIEF FUND expands our ability to support artists in times of difficulty. Through the generosity of donors from both within and outside the Western Avenue artist community we are able to offer emergency studio rent assistance so that the continuity of an artist’s practice and growth is not derailed by a single life event.

Thank you for supporting our community of artists and creative entrepreneurs. Your donation helps us to sustain safe and affordable spaces where the arts can thrive!
