Nevada County Arts Council Launches Artist Relief Fun & What a Relief Online Concert

Arts events, concerts, and productions have been cancelled in venues across the county due to the effects of COVID-19 and professional artists whose livelihoods are dependent on these events are facing insurmountable loses.

In response, Nevada County Arts Council has formed a coalition of local arts organizations to create an emergency initiative to offer financial and informational resources to artists within Nevada County.

Now is the time to give back to our artists who contribute so much to the quality of our lives and the wellbeing of our community. Funds will be distributed as micro relief grants to eligible artists once our fund has reached a critical level.

Your tax-deductible donation goes directly toward the support of professional artists in all disciplines whose livelihoods have been affected by the public health crisis. Click here to donate.

To help jumpstart donations and raise awareness for the fund, Nevada County Arts Council is presenting an online festival on August 22 featuring over 40 performances by musicians, artists, actors, and more.

This online festival is not only an incredible show of pride and solidarity for our arts community, but also provides entertainment and enjoyment for all of us who have missed seeing our favorite theater group or band perform in the last few months, or who have missed walking into a gallery or going to the movies.

There are many ways to give to our fund. You can join us for our WHAT A RELIEF! online festival, and become a donor via our GoFundMe campaign. You can make a one time donation below. Or you can become a monthly donor to our fund at a level that you feel comfortable with.
