September is National Preparedness Month are you ArtsReady? By | September 10, 2019 As Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas and the North American east coast last week, we are reminded that disaster can strike no matter where you are located. There are a number of resources and websites that can help you prepare and stay safe. ArtsReady has a number of easy and free/inexpensive tools and resources including the ArtsReady online planning platform. The Performing Arts Readiness Project (PAR) offers free webinars on many aspects of arts preparedness. NCAPER (the National Coalition for Arts' Preparedness and Emergency Response) has Hurricane Preparedness Tips for Visual Artists, and Performing and Literary Artists. CERF+ Artists Emergency Resources offers the new Studio Safety Guide, in addition to its longstanding resource The Studio Protector. As a reminder, APAP member organizations may join ArtsReady for just $150 for their first year---that's a 50% discount!
