New Orleans: Creative Response Relief Fund

Deadline: first round applications due April 30 at midnight.

In light of the COVID-19 crisis, Platforms Fund has suspended its normal granting program in order to provide $2,000 individual emergency relief grants to local creators. The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has allowed all Regional Re-granting Program sites, of which Platforms Fund is one of sixteen, to re-allocate their annual $100,000 grants to establish and administer COVID-19 emergency relief funds in their communities. This initial support seeded the Creative Response Relief Fund, which in addition to Antenna and Ashé Cultural Arts Center, now includes the efforts of Junebug Productions and the Weavers Fellowship, pooling resources to distribute a total of $190,000 in support within the greater New Orleans region.
