FACILITATING & CONVENING
In addition to promoting preparedness, the Coalition works to immediately convene arts and cultural leaders in localities/regions affected by disaster for information-sharing and listening. NCAPER helps to facilitate and connect aid needed with aid offered.
In advance of Hurricane Florence, Americans for the Arts sent the Preliminary Impact Assessment to organizations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The Assessment tool outlines preparedness tips and other helpful resources for arts organizations. The Coalition will coordinate response phone calls with the affected areas and work with those who are in need to determine what level of support is needed.
