ABOUT THE RENT RELIEF FUND:

In collaboration with Rania El Mugammar the Akin Rent Relief Fund has been established to provide current Akin artists and creatives with anonymous, one time emergency grants in hopes of offering short term financial aid towards one month of studio rent in unexpected situations or times of financial instability.

This unique fund has been launched as part of our ongoing Equity and Inclusion work at Akin, including our recent demographics survey report - which highlighted the needs and experiences of our community. We intend for the Akin Rent Relief Fund to reduce barriers for Akin studio members and create opportunities for marginalized communities. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing, as needed, basis when funds are available.

Akin Rent Relief Fund is administered and overseen by a jury consisting of Elder Artist in Residence Catherine Tammaro, one current Akin Projects board member and one current Akin staff member. Funding allotment will be based on need, merit of the application, and available funding through consensus based decision making.
