REC RELIEF

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

ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

In the summer of 2020, REC launched “REC Relief” to support the creative community during some of the most challenging times in recent history.

REC Relief provided funding opportunities in the form of grants and sponsored REC memberships to help ensure artists had the necessary resources they needed.

We are proud to start 2021 by launching REC Relief Part 2. More grants, more sponsored Memberships, all from our community partners.

“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.”
