It is really important to keep connected during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, but with incomes drying up meeting the costs of data and phone connections is getting harder for lots of artists.
Keeping Connected is an Arts Front Action inspired by Little Lunch Online #2 and started by the Every Voice Foundation. It provides a one-off payment of $210 to artists who have no internet access or are at risk of losing their access. It is designed to help cover the costs of phone and data connections for 6 months based on $35 per month. (*see some good current options, following).
Arts Front / Little Lunch Online members who are in touch with artists who need this support to keep connected are asked to put them in touch with Every Voice or you can email and make the connection on their behalf.
In the first roll-out their are 23 payments available. Contact Anne Dunn at the Every Voice Foundation.
