Art and culture professionals are heavily impaired by the present situation. Theatres are closed, concerts were cancelled, exhibitions and events were suspended. The existential income of tens of thousands of persons is currently fading away. This situation is now recognised by always more people. The GLS Bank and Elinor – both partners of the World Goetheanum Association – have started a cooperative emergency art aid project aimed at providing quick support, without bureaucracy. The World Goetheanum Association is committed to help this project. This is the link:
Roughly 118,000 euros have already been collected, so that 173 artists could receive support. We are quite pleased about this. However, we receive every day new applications from artists of all disciplines who are in need.
With an Art Auction (https://elinor.network/auktion/) we would like to help increase the donation rate. We were able to obtain the participation of 26 renowned artists. Each one of them donated one art piece. 100% of the auction proceeds will revert in favour of the KunstNothilfe fund.
