How To Support Your Local Atlanta Artists Put Out Of Work By Coronavirus
Many Atlanta artists and musicians are struggling to pay bills as live venues, conferences, and schools close, and events are rescheduled or cancelled. Artists, musicians, photographers, and performers often aren’t paid if an event is cancelled, and they are seeing weeks or even months of income delayed or lost as cancellations mount.
These performers and entertainers are the heart of our community. They bring joy to our lives in countless ways. The Rainbow Militia Circus, a group of circus performers, aerialists, and musicians, is working to provide information about how we can help support our local artists during this time of uncertainty.
Nest Realty Atlanta, in collaboration with the Rainbow Militia Circus, is creating a database where workers in the gig economy can share their skills with those looking to hire people virtually or for services for a future date.
If you are a performer, artist, creator, photographer, crafter, graphic designer, musician, or anyone who offers local services that are being disrupted due to the coronavirus, please fill out this form. (Please note, your answers will be publicly available. This is specific to ATLANTA area artists.)
We encourage you to share with not only your performer friends, but with those who own businesses, who may be looking to hire particular skills.
The full database of performers can be publicly accessed here.
If you would like to create a database like this for your own city, please reach out to [email protected].
