The Provincetown Performing Arts Fund (PPAF) strives to provide stability and life-saving support to our beloved community of performance artists who have been instrumental in making Provincetown a vibrant and diverse entertainment destination. Our vision is a Provincetown that supports its vibrant community of performance artists in order to encourage economic growth, build community and inspire creativity.
The PPAF serves performance artists, musicians, theatre professionals, and technical production staff. PPAF strives to support those who earn their living within the performing arts as well as providing support for emerging artists committed to working and living in Provincetown. Performance Artists are an integral part of our community. These artists rely heavily on the already unpredictable ‘seasonal tourism’ for their income. Within the season they depend not only on tourism, but entertainment venues, bars, and most importantly social engagement in order to survive. It became apparent, especially during the Covid-19 crisis, that many of our local and treasured artists would suffer a staggering loss of income based on necessary social distancing guidelines. The PPAF was created to support these individuals whose contributions make up the fabric of our community.
Thanks to the support of The Palette Fund, 100% of your donation will go directly to those in need.
