Aid For Artist Amidst COVID19
The economic challenges from the pandemic are extending to models, makeup artists, hair stylists and photographers who often are considered independent contractors.
These artists who make up the fabric of the fashion industry can apply for special Pandemic Unemployment Assistance. This assistance is guaranteed by the federal government and administered by each state. It is also true that models who are non U.S. citizens but legally working in the U.S. are eligible.
Agencies have released intel on the fact that they are beginning to do a lot more digitally in order to get their models work.
