We have loved seeing the creative ways artists and arts organizations are sharing their art. Check out this collaboration between Chamber Music Charleston and Palmetto City Ballet, celebrating Charleston's 350th birthday!

With last week’s passing of the PPP Health Care Enhancement Act, also known as the “COVID-19 3.5” relief package, we compiled a list of groups that provide application and lending support and some resources that explain what’s available.

More regional and program-specific resources are listed here.
  • FMA is running a webinar series for South Carolina arts organizations, focused on financial best practices for moving beyond the coronavirus.
  • Our Collections Emergency Relief Fund closes today, May 1.
  • Our Lowcountry Artistic Vitality Emergency Fund is open and applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis.
  • Reminder to existing Artistic Vitality grantees who would usually be in our fall cycle. Those choosing to receive an expedited grant, the application and final report deadline is next Friday, May 8.
  • The next application deadline remains July 31 for all new applicants, conservation grantees, and arts grantees choosing not to accelerate.
  • We are excited to announce the launch of electronic grant payments. Grantees can still choose to receive a mailed paper check, but with many offices closed or unable to receive mail, we are pleased to offer this option.

We were heartened to see that a grant made to Coastal Carolina University last year has led to additional funding and partnerships to support documenting stories and cultural artifacts of Gullah communities in Georgetown County, SC.

In the conservation world, while humans are sheltering at home, wildlife has been checking out new territory. In Chicagoland, piping plovers are returning to the beaches, according to this Chicago Tribune story
