News (Alberta): Calgary Arts Development Assumes ‘Arts Responder Hub’ Role – Alberta Flood

UPDATE:

Calgary Arts Development (CADA) has partnered with the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) and is now accepting flood impact assessment information from artists and arts organizations across the province.

CADA will be providing a preliminary assessment of the flood’s impact of Alberta’s arts sector to all orders of government and key partners by Friday, June 28, and requires your assistance in gathering this information. If you are an artist or an arts organization that has sustained damage or lost revenue due to the floods, please fill out this form by 3PM TODAY to be included in the preliminary report: http://calgaryartsdevelopment.com/flood-impact-assessment.

Please note that you can still fill out the form after today – CADA and AFA want to get the best information possible. The above deadline is only for the preliminary report.

If you or your organization face an immediate crisis or need for assistance, CADA will do its best to assist through its networks. If you face an immediate need please fill out this form: http://calgaryartsdevelopment.com/content/flood-assistance-immediate-needs.

If you have not been affected by the flood, please forward this message on to someone who has. Let’s work together to try to provide as much flood damage assessment information as possible!

calgary_arts_developmentCalgary Arts Development extends its sympathy to everyone who has been affected by the Alberta flooding. We are grateful to our inexhaustible city workers and all Calgarians who continue to help their neighbours throughout this crisis.

Calgarians have witnessed a tremendous outpouring of offers to assist in recovery efforts. As The City’s arts development authority, Calgary Arts Development is assuming the role of an arts responder hub playing three key roles:
  1. Coordinator: we will gather information about the flood’s impact on Calgary’s artists and arts organizations, and can help facilitate connections between those needing help and those wanting to help. We will share the information we gather with other authorities as quickly as possible.
  2. Information source and guide: we are compiling specific information that may help an impacted artist or arts organization understand the steps they should take, and will assist artists and arts organizations in accessing supports as they become available. We will create lists of artists and arts organizations who are willing to offer their talents to serve general community relief efforts.
  3. Relief provision: we are looking at our own available resources that we may be able to redirect to assist organizations and artists that are facing crisis. We will work with our partners to identify and direct resources appropriately. As of June 24, we do not know if any extraordinary funding or resources will be available.
IMMEDIATE ACTIONS:
  1. We will be providing an assessment of the flood’s impact of Calgary’s arts sector to all orders of government and key partners by Friday, June 28, and we require your assistance in gathering this information. If you are an artist or an arts organization that has sustained damage or lost revenue due to the floods, please fill out this form. 
  2. If you or your organization is facing an immediate crisis or needs assistance due to the floods, we will do our best to assist through our networks. Please let us know if you face an immediate need through this form.
We wish you all to be safe during these difficult times and will update you further as our city recovers from the flood. Don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
 
Sincerely,
The Calgary Arts Development team
