Niarchos Foundation Boosts “Creatives Rebuild New York”, Art Style

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation, whose generous hand reaches across New York and Greece and other countries offering grants is taking part in the Creatives Rebuild New York $125 million program to get the arts thriving again as the COVID-19 pandemic gradually pulls back.

It will join with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Ford Foundation in the scheme that's designed to help the city's artists who found themselves locked out of work and closed museums and workshops during a lockdown.

CRNY, as it's called, will offer aid for artists with either guaranteed income or full-time employment opportunities to keep the arts alive as artists fell on hard times during the pandemic's dark times.

CRNY will offer a guaranteed income program that’s designed to provide monthly payments to up to 2,400 artists who have acute financial needs and 300 artists will get funding toward gaining employment in salaried positions.

“Artists need and deserve to be paid predictable and regular incomes,” arts administrator Sarah Calderon, who’s leading the CRNY launch, reported Observer. “They are agents of social change, strengthening equitable, healthy, and sustainable communities,” she added. Just in time.
