Support Arts Hub’s Artist Relief Fund


Hey arts-loving friends! Albuquerque’s Arts Hub is raising funds for artists impacted by the pandemic. Donate at their fundraising page:

Donations made before March 26 will be matched by JBIT tech so get on it!

We talked about Arts Hub’s fundraiser yesterday on the Pyragraph LIVE videostream and I took a stab at doing a “book sale livestream fundraiser” to support their effort, so I pulled together a little video from yesterday’s footage. Thanks to The Directory for the music, and to Eva Avenue and Turtle O’Toole who joined me for the livestream. :)

Thanks to Arts Hub and everyone else coming together to support our creative community!
