A collection of resources to support Black creators & those impacted by COVID 19, powered by REC and our Partners.

In a time of much uncertainty, REC and our Partners are here to support the creative community.

REC Relief will be providing funding opportunities to help ensure artists have the necessary resources they need.

As a bridge between the Arts & Business communities, REC is honored to continue supporting artists at this critical time.

“We’ve always believed that the role of the artist is to push society forward.

Artists allow us to reflect on the realities we experience, and empower us to imagine a new & different future.

We believe this is needed most right now. REC has partnered with regional businesses to launch a fund to help offset the financial impact of COVID-19 on Black artists, and to support them in creating art to further the movement. We all have a role in this, and at REC we know providing the space and resources for artists to create in is paramount.”
