LEIA Emergency Grant
In an effort to help address the impacts of lost revenue due to the closure of immersive/interactive experiences as a preventive measure to control the spread of COVID-19, LEIA (League of Experiential and Immersive Artists) has decided to provide a centralized location where artists may apply for modest grants.
While we hope to provide a model for other organizations providing direct relief to affected artists, at this time the founding chapter of LEIA will be focusing its efforts on the greater LA area.
Emergency grants to defray specific costs/shortfalls incurred by cancellations, postponements, and complications of COVID-19 will be awarded in amounts of up to $250 per individual applicant.
In order to qualify for emergency assistance, applicants must demonstrate involvement in an immersive/experiential production that has been affected by closures/delays due to COVID-19.
Applicants must indicate the specific need that the grant will address (rent, utilities, etc.).
Grant recipients will be chosen from among qualifying applicants via lottery and awarded on a rolling basis. Grants will be awarded weekly, starting one week after the fund has enough resources for a full grant, and will continued to be awarded until all funds have been awarded. Applications will be due every Tuesday at noon, and awarded on Fridays. Any eligible applications that have not been selected will roll over to the next selection period: there is no need to reapply.
Please see the LEIA Emergency Grant GoFundMe for further information.
Please include project name and production company.
