Houston, TX - November 29, 2017 - The Harvey Arts Recovery Fund (HARF) — an organization that supports the disaster recovery needs of the Greater Houston area arts, culture and creative community — will host a Knowledge Share event on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Winter Street Studios in Houston. The free event includes talks by arts recovery experts (Panel 1: Arts Responders & Community Networking) and local artists (Panel 2: Artists Respond), as well as a grants funding and recovery resource fair.

Hurricane Harvey had a major impact on the creative community in the Greater Houston Area. This Knowledge Share will offer resources to help individual artists (writers, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, actors, visual artists, etc.), along with staff of arts, culture, preservation and historical organizations, get back to business. The event will feature two panel discussions — one featuring arts leaders who will discuss their experience and knowledge on the subject of disaster recovery, and another featuring artists who will share personal stories of experiencing and recovering from natural disasters — as well as networking and resource tables. The event will provide pathways for building a stronger community network for the arts in Southeast Texas and reveal the ways that artists and the arts play an important role in the recovery process.

Speakers include Amy Schwartzman, who has worked at the intersection of arts and disaster management at the New York Arts Recovery Fund, the National Coalition for Arts’ Preparedness and Emergency Response, and the National and Cultural Resource Recovery Section of FEMA’s New York Sandy Recovery Office; Sanford Hirsch, the Executive Director of the New York-based Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation; Amelia Brown, a writer, speaker, artist, consultant and the founder of Emergency Arts; Diane Falkenhagen, a Galveston-based artist whose studio flooded during Hurricane Ike; and Lacy Johnson, a Houston-based artist, curator, professor, activist and author; along with representatives from the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF+), Gottlieb Foundation, MusicCares and Harvey Arts Recovery Fund, who will be available to answer questions and provide assistance to those seeking help with recovery from Harvey.

The resource fair is open to all and free with RSVP. To register, visit www.harveyartsrecovery.org and click on the “Upcoming Event” tab.
