In times of uncertainty and isolation, the world needs creators more than ever. That’s why we can’t wait to spend time together this Wednesday, March 18th , at our Weird Stream-a-thon — a free virtual creator hang-out hosted by our CEO Jack Conte. The programming is unreal in the best way possible.
During the stream-a-thon, we’ll be raising money for our new artist grant — a fund for creators run by creators — benefiting artists whose creative businesses have been adversely affected by Covid-19.
We’re kicking off the grant by donating $10K, on top of $1 for every Weird Stream-a-thon attendee. This means that, even if you can’t donate, you’ll be helping creators worldwide just by attending ( and sharing ) this event.
More info on the artist grant:
- You can help impacted creators by donating any amount to the grant here .
- If you’re a creator facing extreme financial hardship during this time, you can apply to be a grant recipient here .
- We’ll have a committee of creators deciding on the recipients of these funds.
If you can’t give but want to help, share this. The more attendees, the bigger the fund, and the larger the grant we have to help creators with.
Thank you for helping us support creative work during this difficult time. See you Wednesday!
