Summary

Disasters can destroy a city's historical/art landmarks and are becoming the new norm due to climate change. To protect Houston's $1.1 billion cultural economy, Houston Arts Alliance's Disaster Services program is developing an integrated support network composed of ~100 emergency managers and arts professionals. Funding will ensure that thousands of individual artists and over 150 nonprofit art/culture organizations in the Greater Houston region are ready and resilient for the next disaster.

Challenge

There is currently NO organization in Houston that serves the unique needs of artists during times of disaster. This project will prepare thousands of individual artists and over 150 nonprofit art/culture organizations in the Greater Houston region to be ready and resilient for the next disaster.

Solution

As the disaster leader for the cultural community, Houston Arts Alliance will provide a bridge between existing emergency managements systems and the cultural community. This bridge will ensure that a centralized system is in place so that needs are met and resources are more readily available in times of disaster.

Long-Term Impact

This project will ensure that 100 emergency managers and art professionals are ready to preserve Houston's history, culture, and art when the next disaster strikes. Additionally, as a first-of-its-kind program, Houston Arts Alliance is creating a system that can be replicated by other cities across the country that are prone to disasters.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
