Supporting creative work by women
I received an E-mail from CUE Art Foundation, one of my favorite places in New York, about a series of upcoming FREE workshops (for artists of all disciplines) about a variety of post-Sandy needs and topics. I’ve included the E-mail information below.
SPRING 2013 MEETING ARTISTS’ NEEDS
Emergency Workshop Series: Part I of III
New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC), and CUE Art Foundation are pleased to announce a series of three workshops focused on emergency recovery and preparedness for artists of all disciplines. These arts organizations have come together to provide critical support and resources for artists who were impacted by Hurricane Sandy as well as artists looking to prepare for situations that may occur in the future.

DATE: Thursday, January 10, 2013: 6:00 – 8:00pm

Where are you in your recovery from Superstorm Sandy? What is working and what is not? Share your experience with other artists, learn about recovery resources that are available to artists, and get some tips for navigating the recovery process. Cornelia Carey and Craig Nutt of CERF+, a national artists’ service organization that specializes in emergency recovery and preparedness for artists, will facilitate this gathering. Representatives of other organizations that are active in the Sandy recovery effort will also attend to answer questions and help you locate the resources you need.
