Matt Ortile Example
Are you an editor at a magazine/publication looking for articles/essays *not* related to COVID-19? Drop your @ in the replies so freelancers can find opportunities beyond pandemic coverage.— Matt Ortile (@ortile) March 15, 2020
It’s important to stay on top of corona info, but we can care about many things at once!
Author Matt Ortile tweeted to editors of the media world and he asked them to be “visible” so that the freelancers can find some opportunities in this crazy Coronavirus times.
Guess what happened?
Editors rained from the sky and they asked the freelancer writers to pitch them with their essays!
And freelancer writers found new opportunities to breathe…
You can see how people are grateful in hundreds of comments…
This is creativity. This is pure intelligence. This is largeheartedness.
This is an amazing example of staying financially strong in Corona times.
Thank you, Matt! Thank you very much!
Covid-19 & Freelance Artists Example
Covid-19 & Freelance Artists Resources is a movement supporting the independent artists including actors, designers, producers, technicians, stage managers, musicians, composers, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, craft artists, teaching artists, dancers, writers, photographers…
This platform feeds independent artists with some resources like:
- General Preparedness
- Advocacy Alerts
- Emergency Funding
- Quantifying Economic Impact of Cancelled Work
- International Resources
- Best Practices For Online Teaching
- Online Platforms
- Health and Mental Health Resources
- Temporary/Remote Job Opportunities
- Other Miscellaneous Wisdom
- Other Lists
- Interrupting Racism Resources
So these people created a hub for the independent artist community to stay financially strong in the Coronavirus times.
The question is can we learn from this movement to create some positive impact in our society?
I will keep adding amazing examples here and support the creative people who start this financial fight against the Coronavirus. If you see an example that falls under this category, please send it to me so that I can publish. Let’s rock it!
