Independent Artists COVID-19 Impact Documentation
Seattle Independent Artist Sustainability Effort (SIASE), a coalition of local artist organizers, is gathering information on COVID-19 impact within Seattle's artistic community. Our goal is to empower artists, enhance connectivity, and promote self-determination during this pandemic crisis. To find out more, please email: seattleindependentartist@gmail.com

SIASE recognizes that the loss of income from COVID-19 will impact artists from communities that have been historically and systemically oppressed the most. To gather data about disparate impacts among BIPOC, trans and non-binary, and differently-abled artists, this survey includes questions that allow you to self-identify.

Please refer to this document for up-to-date resources of COVID-19 relief available to the arts community, organized by arts discipline: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pK-4LuZOkvzIr95XeGYPW6KWNfCXzms7t8QuqVT3cq4/edit?usp=sharing
