Chatham Arts Council announces the creation of CAARE, the Chatham Artist and Arts-Worker Relief Effort.
Created with initial seed money generously granted by Manbites Dog Theater Fund, CAARE’s purpose is to get immediate assistance to Chatham County artists and arts-workers struggling with the economic impacts of the pandemic. We seek to help with basic financial needs for artists and arts-workers who are dealing with widespread cancellations of concerts, plays, events, and art shows–the outlets that musicians, actors, dancers, painters, sculptors, and teaching artists rely on to pay their bills.
Applications to the CAARE fund will be available to Chatham artists and arts-workers through this website on April 3 at 5 pm. Disbursements will begin April 9.
Please join in CAARE’s efforts by adding your contribution to this sustaining fund. 100% of your gift will go to affected artists and arts-workers.
