“Dress Rehearsal… for a Crisis?”
Join us to find out—BEFORE you’re under pressure. You’ll walk into an arts emergency scenario that really could happen to you—a controversy, an accident, a theft, facility damage. You’ll leave with hands-on experience and planning steps you can use to better prepare your organization for an emergency, as well as information on the online readiness planning tool and resources. For more information, visit the ArtsReady booth in Centerstage!


“Cultural Placekeeping: A Guide to Organizing an Emergency Response Network”.
After disasters, experience has shown that artists and arts organizations look first to their arts councils,arts service organizations, and community foundations for help. Being an arts administrator now requires knowing how to respond and be a placekeeper. The Cultural Placekeeping Guide draws on arts leaders’ experience in responding, including the work of CultureAID in New York City after Superstorm Sandy, to provide guidance on building communications networks to make the arts and culture sector more resilient

See you in Boston!!
