The Atlanta Artist Relief Fund was created in March of 2020, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent shelter in place. Since then, AARF has recieved it’s 501(c)3 status from the IRS, expanded programming to include vital mental and emotional health services regardless of an artist’s ability to pay, and worked hard to cultivate a vibrant community in which no
artist gets left behind.
