Artist Relief Fund WA

In response to the devastation wreaked by COVID-19, Artist Relief Fund WA is covering bills and essential medical and mental health expenses for people with careers in the live performing arts in Western Australia.

Days Left

Artist Relief Fund WA is seeking to boost its capacity to support Western Australian arts workers experiencing hardship and distress.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating for our local performing arts industry. Thousands of events, productions, festivals, performances and concerts were cancelled or postponed, leaving countless out-of-work and out-of-pocket. Arts workers of all ages, and at all stages of their careers, are continuing to do it tough.

Artist Relief Fund WA’s mission is to support as many local arts workers as we can. We have been doing this throughout the year by providing targeted financial assistance to alleviate hardship, particularly in cases involving health or mental health emergencies, or situations where people cannot support themselves or afford necessities.

This October in particular – as part of the ACTober campaign – we are asking people whose lives have been enriched by the performing arts to support the people who work in them. Your donations will help pay for medical bills, counselling, or a week’s groceries. They will help us reach as many artists and arts workers as we can – actors, dancers, stage managers, crew and many others. Every dollar donated will help provide an artist with hope and the confidential support they need to make it through to the other side of this crisis.
