In May of 2020 Arts United and the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne joined forces to create the city's first ever Artist Relief Fund, designed to combat the financial pressures on independent artists & creatives suddenly without income because of shutdowns and closures caused by the corona virus pandemic.

With COVID restrictions still hindering many from returning to work, a second phase has been launched.

The Fort Wayne arts scene saw a lot of activity in 2020, despite COVID restrictions.

The year's events have been wildly unprecedented, but the city is determined to live up to this year's Arts United theme, Arts Unite Us, and is understandably proud of its motto, "Arts United We Stand."
