Oklahoma: Arts Disaster Resource Page

The Oklahoma Arts Council (OAC) has launched a new web page designed to help artists and arts organizations to recover from natural and other disasters. The Oklahoma Arts Disaster Resource Page features grants, toolkits and other resources from national and regional entities—such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Coalition for Arts’ Preparedness & Emergency Response, CERF+ and Oklahoma Museums Association’s Disaster Response Network—that can help artists and arts groups preserve their assets and recover their livelihoods following an emergency event. OAC curated this resource collection in response to the high number of tornados, record-breaking rainfall and severe flooding in Oklahoma this spring, which led Gov. Kevin Stitt to declare a state of emergency for all 77 counties in the state. Recognizing its unique position to effectively communicate arts related disaster resources to Oklahoma’s creative sector, OAC felt it was imperative to ensure its constituents had access to such resources. OAC plans to continue to build its Arts Disaster Resource Page, given the likelihood that many of Oklahoma’s artists and arts organizations will benefit from it over time. For more information, contact OAC Director of Marketing and Communications Joel Gavin.
