Statement on Recent Events

The ArtsReady and South Arts team hold in our thoughts our colleagues affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, and by the violence in Las Vegas. There are no words to encompass the enormity of these tragic events. What we can say is that the arts and cultural community comes together in difficult times to help one another. It’s also often challenging for individual artists and arts organizations to navigate the disaster recovery system.
