Still Making Art Happen: Action and Advocacy Campaign Spring 2020
Thank you for advocating for art and artists

Date & Time:

Help Make Art Happen.

To sustain and continue to deliver Locust Projects’ mission to serve as ADVOCATES for artists in our community, Locust Projects’ Board of Directors launched an ambitious campaign to recover lost income from the organization’s popular annual Spring Fling Fundraiser. The Still Making Art Happen Campaign surpassed its goal in just 2 short months thanks to an outpouring support from a community of arts patrons, members and supporters.

Thank you to all of those who supported our action and advocacy campaign. Your gifts helped Make Art Happen through: the Miami Artist Relief Fund providing 40 $1500 emergency grants to Miami artists who have lost income due to COVID-19, LegalARTLInk's pro bono legal services helping Miami creatives of all disciplines navigate legal issues through this crisis from cancelled contracts and commissions to evictions; awarding $60,000 in WaveMaker incubator grants to 12 Miami artists up to $6000 each for publicly accessible projects; sustaining production funding to upcoming artists and more...
