Youth Artists Unite is an organization founded by young artists, for young artists. We aim to give youth performers a platform to showcase and nurture their unique art forms during these unique times. Tune in to our live streams on Instagram and Twitch!
As folks may or may not be aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the arts/live entertainment industry. You can imagine that with shows being cancelled, ticket sales not happening, and rehearsals not being able to take place, among other things, the arts industry will be taking a big hit from this pandemic.
In order to support the arts community, we are encouraging people to donate to the Regional Arts and Culture Council Arts Impact Fund. RACC is an integral part of the local arts community, in Portland specifically, and they provide grants and funding programs to arts organizations in the area, allowing the arts community here to thrive. RACC has specifically set up an Arts Impact Fund to aid arts organizations affected by COVID-19 and we want to support that!
Please spread the word and help support them as well as other arts organizations!
