Disaster Management Resources

The Disaster Management Resource Page has been developed with three primary goals in mind: that all information is current, relevant and easy to navigate. This page will be updated periodically when new research/resources arise. If you have valuable Disaster Management information for the field-at-large that is not currently on TCG's website and/or have suggestions of additional resource categories please contact Ilana B. Rose, associate director of research & collective action, or call (212) 609-5900 x257.

Individual Theatre Artist Disaster Aid

Fractured Atlas
Fractured Atlas is a not-for-profit organization that serves a national community of artists and arts organizations. They provide a unique arts insurance program providing liability, property and casualty insurance for both individual theatre artists and organizations. (You must be a Fractured Atlas member in order to apply.) They also give artists and theatres guidance in finding the right health care plan.

NYFASource
New York Foundation for the Arts maintains an extensive resource list of emergency grants for individual artists. There is a "theater" specific section. There is some grant crossover, however, so it is worth taking the time to skim the other emergency grant art categories.

The Actors Fund, for everyone in entertainment
The Actors Fund is a nationwide human services organization that helps all professionals in the performing arts. The Fund is a safety net, providing programs and services for those who are in need, crisis or transition. Individual emergency resources available include: social services, financial assistance, mental health counseling and affordable housing. This website also contains a thorough database of emergency resources searchable by state.
