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.
ArtsReady assists theatres with “all hazards planning.” ArtsReady is a web-based emergency preparedness platform designed to provide arts organizations with customized business continuity plans for post-crisis sustainability. This website also contains helpful preparedness and recovery articles as well as links to outside resources.
Grantmakers in the Arts
Supporting a Creative America
The Coalition for Artists’ Preparedness and Emergency Response is a cross-disciplinary, voluntary national task force formed in 2006, involving over 20 arts organizations (artist/art-focused organizations, arts agencies, and arts funders) and individual artists, spearheaded by Craft Emergency Relief Fund/Artists’ Emergency Resources (CERF+). Coalition participants are committed to a combined strategy of resource development, educational empowerment and public policy advocacy designed to ensure that there is an organized, nationwide safety net for artists and the arts organizations that serve them before, during and after disasters. This website contains: sample disaster plans, emergency funding reports and emergency actor resources.
The Artist's Guide to Emergencies
Developed by CERF+, the Studio Protector is a self-help information toolkit geared for artists at all levels. Working artists have been involved in every step of the design and testing of the toolkit. There are wall guides which are a calendar-sized reference tool with checklists containing the most essential information for emergency preparedness and response for a small fee and free online guides including a wealth of information such as: getting the right insurance coverage, resources for business emergency continuity plans and tips on how to assess and report damage.
