A New Emergency Relief Grant for Women Artists Over 40

30 March 2020, USA

In times of crisis, artists are among the first and most deeply impacted by economic hardship. That may be doubly true for populations who were especially vulnerable to begin with, affected by factors such as race and class. A new emergency relief grant, launched by Anonymous Was A Woman in partnership with the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), seeks to address two of these factors — gender and age — by supporting women artists age 40 and older who have lost income or opportunities due to the coronavirus pandemic.
