Our state’s historic flood catastrophe is presenting multiple challenges, ranging from a temporary loss of water or electricity to having to completely rebuild a home or facility. As you work through the process of recovery, please take advantage of the resources available for artists and arts organizations on our website and on the ArtsReady website:
Readiness, Response and Recovery for Arts Professionals
Help for the Carolinas – Essential Arts Recovery Resources
We will continue to update our recovery web page and also post information on our Facebook page.
We are also working to develop an accurate understanding of the flood’s impact on the state’s arts community. Next week we will send you a brief survey to gather information about the severity of your damage. We want to collect this data to determine the best way to help you and to report to our regional and national partners.
Our staff members are all safe, but due to the ongoing situation in Columbia, our office may not be fully staffed again until next week. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out by email.
