Many organizations and groups we love are putting resources in the artist’s hands. We’ll share those lists, some specific Atlanta resources and other materials to support you through these unprecedented times. If there’s a resource you want to add to this list, please reach out to actionteam@c4atlanta.org with the links and we’ll add! Published 3/23, last updated 3/30.
