Nominations open for WESTAF Regional Arts Resilience Fund

The U.S. Regional Arts Resilience Fund was created as an urgent response to the impact of COVID-19 on the nation's arts organizations. Through the WESTAF Regional Arts Resilience Fund, WESTAF will administer the re-granting of over $1.7 million across its 13-state region in the fall of 2020. The fund will prioritize those organizations that are most at risk during this crisis, including historically under-resourced organizations, as well as those serving under-resourced populations, communities, and/or art forms. Anyone can submit a nomination on behalf of an organization. The deadline for nominations is Friday, July 31, 2020 at 4 p.m. PDT. Learn more here.
