    Jazz Coalition Launches Commission Fund to Support Artists During COVID-19 Pandemic

    Jazz Coalition, a collective of music industry professionals, musicians, fans, and supporters, has launched the Jazz Coalition Commission Fund to support artists in the jazz community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Artists are nominated by Jazz Coalition members and selected by a jury of their peers to receive $1,000 commission grants to create new work. When public assembly restrictions are lifted, commission recipients will premiere their new works at Jazz Coalition member venues.

    To become a Jazz Coalition member and nominate an artist for a Jazz Coalition commission grant, visit jazzcoalition.org and give a tax-deductible donation of $100 or more.

NIVA reports that the existing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), even with recent modifications, will not save independent venues, as it leaves fixed costs, even when venues are not permitted to open, and has released a new set of policy requests.
