SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture and Luminaria Artist Foundation today launched the Corona Arts Relief Program, which provides technical assistance and professional development support for individual artists during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As San Antonio, like several cities across the world, implements social distancing requirements to protect citizens by preventing community spread of COVID-19, many in the arts industry have lost revenue due to cancellations. The Corona Arts Relief Program, managed by Luminaria Artist Foundation and made possible through the Department of Arts & Culture’s Technical Assistance program, offers up to $600 to individual artists residing in Bexar County for:

· Professional development training, arts education (not applicable to college tuition) from April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

· Lost revenue as a result of performances and artistic activities cancelled during the National Emergency Declarations currently between March 13, 2020 and April 19, 2020.

The program covers professional development including in-person or distance education, apprenticeships, conferences, travel and travel-related expenses. Artists applying for professional development funds must include supporting documentation such as conference and training flyers or notices, invoices and/or receipts for fees and travel. Recipients of the Corona Arts Relief Program will be invited to share learned knowledge at a later date when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Technical assistance applicable for funding includes accrued expenses for cancelled events, performances, and travel and travel-related expenses. Artists applying for lost revenue due to cancellations, must include supporting documentation for reimbursement including proof of an actual loss or a future loss due to a cancellation. Supporting document includes receipts, contracts, emails, flyers of events to be held which includes artist’s name.

Artists interested in applying can submit at by April 14, 2020. Only one request can be submitted per artist.
