Workshop to Access Emergency Relief Funds and Services

Individual artists and small creative businesses in the arts and culture community are invited to join our free workshop on “How to Access Funds AND Community Resources.”

“We learned in reading the Pinellas Artists Relief Fund applications that many creatives are not aware that they are eligible for these other funds, and that several of the funds have broadened their eligibility,” states John Collins, Director of the Arts Alliance.  “We also learned how important it is to get information to them about the social services in the county that are here to help.”

Hosted by Kimberly Jackson, Esq., Executive Director of the SPC Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. This one hour presentation will cover new deadlines and broader eligibility and coverage to answer frequently asked questions about sources of grants and other resources.
