A Vision for Emergency Readiness, Response and Recovery in the Arts Sector
A National Coalition for Arts' Preparedness and Emergency Response White Paper
This updated white paper from the Coalition for Arts' Preparedness and Emergency Response lays out the Coalition's vision, accomplishments (to date), as well as future strategies and obstacles. Finally the document serves as an invitation to arts organizations to join the coalition and grow the cause of emergency preparedness.
On a smaller scale, individual artists and arts organizations face problems that impact their ability to do their daily work: the irreversible computer crash; the public protests of a controversial exhibit or performance; the unexpected loss of an organization’s founder or leader; the frozen pipes or electrical fires that damage a facility or studio; the sudden decline in revenue; the break-in or petty theft that damages the psyche of the organization or individual.
