Throughout this pandemic, working artists in our region have lost critical opportunities to financially support themselves and their families.

To address this, RAC’s Artist Relief Fund provided $500,000 to nearly 600 local working artists who were impacted by the #COVID19 pandemic to cover urgent, life-sustaining expenses. We’re proud to have helped these artists, who are incredibly essential to the vitality of our community. #STLStrong #314Together
