The Northampton Arts Council is an organization whose goal is to support and promote the arts in Northampton. Originally created as a Local Arts Lottery Council, it began its work by administering a grants program in which proceeds from a state lottery are distributed to local artists, arts groups, and public schools.

Artist Relief Project

Artist Relief Project

Support from this project is intended for individuals pursuing careers as artists (in any discipline, with any level of success/ experience), whose anticipated income has been directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis (due to cancellation and closures of events, venues, performances, and productions and so forth).

If you are in need of short-term financial assistance, we want to help by providing a one-time emergency relief payment in the amount of $200 on a first-come, first-serve basis. Fill out the application below, and we will contact you if needed.

We also want to help by providing assistance to artists in need with support to pursue more economically sustainable means of sharing and selling your work. If you would like access to these programs and resources, please indicate your need on the form below and we will reach out to you.

These funds and support are available to any artist on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the only limitation being how many funds we can raise. We are accepting donations indefinitely and hope to help as many artists as possible affected by this crisis.
