The months ahead will be tough for all of us. For artists, museums and arts organisations –and particularly for self-employed people in the art world and for those institutions that rely on hand-to-mouth fundraising to cover their core costs – the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis may be felt more swiftly than for others who have, for the time being, the security of an employer or the safety net of public funding.
It has been heartening to read about those campaigns that have been launched, across both public and private sectors, to safeguard the livelihoods of individuals and to guarantee, as far as possible, the future of arts organisations. To help raise the profile of any such initiative, in coming months Apollo will offer free digital advertising for the promotion of relief efforts in the art world aimed at mitigating the consequences of the pandemic. So whether you’re running an appeal for funds, launching a charity auction to support an art school, or promoting grants for artists, please get in touch. We have some availability on the Apollo homepage and further opportunities on our thrice-weekly editorial newsletters, which are delivered to the inboxes of more than 20,000 email subscribers – and we will do our best to offer some space to all suitable applicants.
Please contact Hannah Nashman at email@example.com to find out more about this opportunity.
