LSC: Virtual Performances for DMV Artists & Cultural Workers!
The Love + Solidarity Collective is looking to support artists/cultural workers whose gigs have been cancelled due to coronavirus, and who are dependent on performances for income. If you're a singer, band, poet, writer, DJ, dancer, live painter, live sculptor, or anything else, fill out this form and we'll hit you up with more information soon! We want to prioritize artists who are really struggling financially right now, so please do not apply if you are doing ok (we still love you though).
We'll help set up a livestream for you to perform, and will promote your performance through our networks and social accounts. Donations from people watching as well as a GoFundMe will help support your work. We can offer a baseline pay of $100. $25 out of every $125 we raise will support our collective as a space for DMV artists-- 3 of our 7 collective members have lost their income due to coronavirus, and we're hoping to use this as a way to support ourselves to keep up our 40+ year legacy as a nurturing space for artists and activists in the DMV.
