These funds are intended to help local artists who add value to Somerville’s economy and the creative life of the community.
SAC asks that artists who have not been significantly impacted—i.e., have full-time jobs, support from a partner, etc.—do not apply for this grant. Examples of artists who should apply include:
A musician who has lost income due to cancellation of paid gigs.
An artist without a full-time job struggling to pay for rent and essential services.
A theatre designer who has lost their job and whose unemployment has run out
