    Rhiannon Giddens Joins Amanda Palmer, Neil Gaiman to Create "Art Is Alive" COVID-19 Resource Guide

    Rhiannon Giddens has joined with musician Amanda Palmer and author Neil Gaiman to create Art Is Alive, a new online resource guide to support artistic and creative freelance communities whose livelihoods have been so greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    "There have been thousands of crowdfunding links, GoFundMes, Patreons, and other fundraising efforts flying around to help artists who are slipping, and it can all get very overwhelming for an artist seeking help, or for a generous donor who wants to support," says the group. "We are hoping that this website can act as a kind of general yellow pages for the current money emergency in the art and music world. We like to call it our COVID-19 directory of give and take."

    Art Is Alive also offers a place for artists to interact, to share information as new events, new resources, and new ideas develop. There is also a newsletter that will offer updates alongside personal stories, experiences, and words of hope from artists, musicians, writers, and more.
