Resources for Artists

COVID-19 has shook the landscape of our society.  We are all navigating our way through this new stay at home, work from home, school from home environment.  What gives us strength is knowing that we are all in this together. And we, at Northglenn Arts, are here to support you.

The creative community has always been a resilient one.  Some of our best work has come in times of struggle.  We know that the arts help communities overcome difficult times. To support our creative community, we have put together a list of resources and information on emergency funds for those who may need it.

Art has the power to heal, connect and communicate a shared experience.  Keep creating.
