online studio visits for artists:

Inaugurated in response to COVID-19 school closures, this spreadsheet aggregates those who are available for online studio visits, guest lectures, and crits through video chat and other platforms.

Many educators are now adapting their course structures on short notice. This can especially impact studio arts, architecture, and design, where students rely on access to facilities and tools. Faculty hope to keep their classes engaged by inviting guest speakers. Those stuck at home could use something to do, and perhaps income.

This will remain useful in the future. Perhaps you have a list of people you’d love to invite for critiques or lectures, but you couldn’t afford their travel costs anyway.

This resource can evolve. Email me, S Surface (they/them/theirs), s@s-u-r-f-a-c-e.com with suggestions and questions.

covid-19/ freelance resource:

This list is specifically designed to serve freelance artists, and those interested in supporting the independent artist community. This includes, but is not limited to, actors, designers, producers, technicians, stage managers, musicians, composers, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, craft artists, teaching artists, dancers, writers & playwrights, photographers, etc.

What this list IS: an aggregated list of FREE resources, opportunities, and financial relief options available to artists of all disciplines.

What this list IS NOT: a place to promote individual artist practices (we love you, but we’re not equipped for that); a place to promote fee for service work; or a place to seek direct emergency funding.

Original resources and inspiration provided by Nicole Brewer, Ann Marie Lonsdale, Quanice Floyd, Tiffany Wilhelm, Brian Herrera, Hannah Fenlon, & Clementine Bordeaux.

If you have resources or upcoming virtual events you’d like to add to this list, please submit them via this form. The administrators of this list (Hannah Fenlon, Ann Marie Lonsdale, Abigail Vega) will review and share your resource with the community!

UPDATE: The organizers of this list are producing a panel and community conversation for individual artists on March 16 at 8pm ET, intended to provide resources and build solidarity in the freelance community. Read more here – we hope you’ll join us!
