“Starting today, visual artists who are residents of Miami-Dade County can apply for up to $500 to cover lost income...We are starting with $25,000 in seed funding, by repurposing funds saved from canceled Oolite Arts programming that we are now putting back into local artists and the economy. It’s offered on a rolling basis, so please urge your visual artist friends to apply early...We’re thankful that Oolite is in a position to be a resource to artists in this way during COVID-19.”
Also via Oolite Arts:
"As the pandemic continues, we are also looking at other ways to support artists through virtual programming and grant opportunities this spring. The Block, our neighborhood short doc competition, is accepting applications now, and The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, will open for submissions April 22, 2020.
The arts are essential to Miami, and so are our artists. We’re grateful to be able to offer this fund to help." See more and apply at oolitearts.org/relieffund
