#GivingTuesday Relief Grants

This year, WSW will be using the GivingTuesday platform of global generosity to support artists who were affected by COVID-19 with unrestricted relief grants in a minimum amount of $400.

Supporting artists and their livelihoods is more important than ever, and we want to use this opportunity to do that in the simplest way possible: give artists money. We will be awarding this grant to a minimum of 10 artists, based on the outcome of the GivingTuesday campaign.

We will be limiting the number of applications to 50. If you are an alumnx of WSW, you are not eligible for this grant, but are encouraged to share this opportunity in your community. WSW’s opportunities are open to all womxn and trans, intersex, nonbinary, and genderfluid people.
