#ReallyHelpingArtists, RHA Micro Grants for Artists was an initiative conceived back in April as a way of creating a positive action amid all of the close-downs and uncertainty of that first full month of lock-down, due to the Covid-19 crisis. 

A cross-disciplinary team from Isobar and Carat donated staff time and expertise to help bring this campaign to life and help make the Really Helping Artist campaign such a success.

In recent correspondence to RHA supporters, Patrick T. Murphy, RHA Director was pleased to add: “I extend my deepest gratitude to you for your contribution to the fund, and, especially to all of our artists who continue to deepen and enrich our engagement with life and do so under the most arduous of conditions. Your courage is exemplary.”
