Artists and other cultural workers and organisations in Katowice, Poland, can get financial support by the city during the corona pandemic. Artists who have lost income as a result of the lockdown measures can apply for a grant. Cultural organisations renting municipal office spaces will be exempted from rent until it is possible to resume their normal work. The city will also ask private property owners to reduce rents for artists. Artists and cultural organisations paying property taxes will be exempted from this tax as well as from the waste disposal charge. Katowice has reserved €110,000 for the support package and had consulted local artists and city councillors in advance for the design. You can read more here (in Polish)
