Boulder's Creative Neighborhoods: COVID-19 work projects
The City of Boulder, Colorado commissioned more than 60 artists who recently lost work due to the COVID-19 pandemic to create new works of art in support of their neighbors.
The Boulder Office of Arts and Culture launched the Creative Neighborhoods: COVID-19 Work Projects, a program that starting in April delivered funding to artists who have lost gigs, had contracts or events cancelled, been laid off, or have otherwise been put in a vulnerable position due to the necessary restrictions to control the COVID-19 Pandemic, explains the program's page.
With a matching grant from the local arts service nonprofit, Create Boulder, the Office of Arts and Culture has distributed funds to more than 60 artists -including musicians, visual artists, poets, filmmakers, dancers, and artists of all kinds- who are currently working on projects throughout Boulder’s neighborhoods.
An interactive map of current Creative Neighborhoods: COVID-19 Work Projects is available on the Office of Arts and Culture website.
