Home Alone Art Series

You are here

The Somerville Arts Council enjoys bringing people together. We understand the importance of continuing to social distance and not gather. The weather is getting cooler and the nights a bit darker, so we have brought back the Home Alone Arts Series ! We want to stay connected and continue to support artists as much as we can. 

The Home Alone Art Series (HAAS) is a series of art related performances, presentations, artist talks, interviews, etc. Tell us more of what you want! The performances represent a variety of genres, including: Music, Visual Arts, Performance, Writing, Theater, Dance and Multidisciplinary art forms. Depending on the presentation or performance, this program will be livestreamed through Facebook or we will also be providing Zoom links for interactive workshops. Stay updated by RSVP-ing to our Facebook events, Follow us: SomervilleArts

*This call is meant for Somerville artists who work freelance and have been directly affected by the cancellations and closures of Covid-19 and who don’t have financial support from family or a working spouse. If you are an LCC Fellowship awardee and still need to complete your community benefit, this virtual platform may serve as a means of completion to receive your fellowship stipend.  However, we will not be paying fellowship applicants the stated minimum stipend.
