Emergency Resources


 

The Kentucky Arts Council is committed to assisting artists, arts organizations and other creatives, freelancers and creative industry stakeholders in accessing information to help navigate this time of uncertainty caused by COVID-19. The arts council has compiled these links to resources that offer valuable information and may be of use as the arts community moves forward. Arts council staff will update this page as more information becomes available. If you have a suggestion about links that could be added, email Jessica Taylor at Jessicat@ky.gov.
