San Francisco Chinese Cultural Center announced that it cooperated with Fangcaodi Art Center and five other community art and cultural institutions to form a "Creative Community Coalition", and launched an unprecedented "Pilot of Guaranteed Income Cash Subsidy" for Artists. The plan will subsidize 1,000 yuan each of 60 artists every month for 18 months to help artists tide over the epidemic. The number of 60 artists has been allocated to the selection of art and cultural institutions in various communities. The Chinese Cultural Center is responsible for selecting 10 of them. At present, candidates have been found. The Chinese Cultural Center and the four selected artists held a press conference on June 29 to announce the start of the project.
