The Sipp Culture Artist Relief Fund's aim is to provide financial resources to independent artists and under-resourced tiny arts organizations as emergency relief during the COVID-19 pandemic. While understanding that there will need to be re-envisioning of our models for financial recovery and sustainability, we strategically direct these funds to help alleviate some of the pressures being felt by small arts organizations, cultural producers, and artists that fly under the national radar.
