Creative Community Thomas Fire Recovery Grant
Purpose & Reach
The purpose of this grant program was threefold:
- To help artists invest in their creative practices so they could stay in Ventura County
- To connect those with ongoing needs to additional resources
- To bring visibility to artists’ needs
More than 40 Ventura County artists, musicians, performers, writers, designers, cultural workers, arts teachers and others whose creative practices or careers were impacted by the natural disasters received grants.
Recipients submitted applications showing they were working artists whose productivity or economic situation were significantly affected through loss or damage of home or studio space, loss of body of work or supplies, loss of income or other economic losses, disruption of career, or other impact.
