The destruction of physical property and financial resources has been devastating to nonprofit arts organizations along the Gulf Coast. This will also be an even greater challenge for self-employed artists, losing stability both at home and at work. As an organization of 350,000 individuals, Arts Action Fund members can help. I encourage you to make a charitable donation to some of these arts-specific recovery funds:
Donate to artists and arts organizations impacted in Greater Houston @ Harvey Arts Recovery Fund
Donate to artists and arts organizations impacted in Texas @ Mid-America’s Texas Arts Fund
Donate to artists and arts organizations impacted in Louisiana @ Creative Relief Louisiana
To stay informed, please regularly visits these websites:
Glasstire is continually updating this list of how Texas arts spaces have been affected.
FreshArts is compiling a spreadsheet of grants and resources for artists.
Americans for the Arts is maintaining a central hub of information on resources and preparedness.
We will continue to update you on disaster relief efforts for cultural organizations and artists.
Thank you for your generosity,
Nina Ozlu Tunceli
