Here’s a Huge List of Resources for Greater Seattle Area Artists

Greater Seattle area Artists, for the past week I’ve been posting lots of resources to help get you through these tough times over on my National Seat Filling Group page. There have been a lot of posts though and perhaps it feels scrambled. So I’ve compiled a list of some of the more essential things that can provide immediate relief. If you have lost wages due to shows getting canceled or if you’re just an individual struggling all together, please check out these links below. And tag me on the Facebook thread in a comment if you want one added to this list.
