Resettlement Services

Following forced displacement and relocation, an artist under threat must establish more than their legal status 

Often, an at-risk artist’s creative process can be restored only after other important factors governing daily life have stabilized. Our Resettlement Assistance program supports at-risk artists as they navigate meeting many essential needs post-relocation.  

Our resettlement services for at-risk artists include:

  • obtaining work-authorization, 
  • securing temporary housing or studio space, 
  • matching artists with network and community building opportunities, English language instructors, employers, universities, residency programs, museums, galleries, curators, fellowships, and grant or emergency funding opportunities.
