Follow your Art is a non-profit initiative designed to help support artists and art workers. It’s an initiative of Sana Ouchtati, supported by Ziad Erraiss and Eva Blaute. What started off as an act of cross-border solidarity in an immediate response to the precarious conditions of artists and art workers during the first weeks of the covid-19 spread, gradually shifted towards a more sustainable approach.
