New Bay Area Community Rapid Response Fund

Headlands Call to Artists

Deadline to Apply: August 31, 2020

Headlands is thrilled to announce the Community Rapid Response Fund, a new, temporary program designed to support in-progress, community-based projects in the Bay Area by providing rapid funding to help such work continue. They are seeking to support work developed in partnership between artists and Bay Area businesses, organizations, or others that focus on one or more of the following:

  • Health, safety, and risk management for workers and neighbors
  • Reopening and recovery of local businesses
  • Preservation of legacy/historic community resources
  • Social/civic justice movements

They can support a limited number of projects with $1,000 each, with preference given to projects led by Black, Indigenous, and/or Artists of Color, projects working within vulnerable communities—such as, but not limited to, communities of compromised immunity, color, or trans/queer identities—and projects that will be significantly impacted by the funding received.

Applications must be received by August 31, 2020; funds will be dispersed by early September, 2020.
