Happy May from Executive Director Dinah Minot
The arts community is slammed. Although we may not all be in the same boat, we are all in the same storm. The sustainability of the arts community is a top priority for us. Creative Portland is doing what we can to help provide direct relief (cash) and to keep the creative community socially connected with curated listings.
We send a warm thanks to old friends and new who have supported the Portland Artist Relief Fund
, a non-discriminatory emergency relief effort available to eligible local artists. U.S. citizenship is not required. We (YOU) have raised our goal of over $50,000. We are thrilled with the outpouring and generosity of community members and will continue to fundraise throughout the summer in preparation for Round 2. DONATE HERE
or send checks payable to Creative Portland at P.O. Box 4675, Portland, ME 04112.
When we all emerge from our cocoons (Bill Gates predicts that hopefully we'll have a vaccine by the end of next year) and when we are able to go out together to hear a favorite local performer or to see a local art exhibition, you too will feel part of having helped our local artists through a terrible time of uncertainty. Bless you. Thank you.
