To support local creatives, freelancers, and our community, AIGA San Diego has compiled a list of helpful resources that provide information on general health, support for freelancers and students, volunteer opportunities, as well as other creative learning resources. We’ll continue to add to this page as appropriate. 

We encourage everyone in our community to stay informed and take the necessary precautions to stay healthy. Please email us if you have a helpful resource, particularly opportunities specific to San Diego, so we can add them to this list.
