Like you, I have watched the heartbreak continue to unfold in California as the wildfires move toward containment and the daunting task of recovery begins. The terrible loss of life and displacement of whole communities are beyond comprehension. Most difficult are the conversations we’ve had with artists facing the possibility of losing a home/studio for the second time in two years.
CERF+ has been reaching out to our contacts in the affected communities, statewide and our national partners sharing information and resources about disaster recovery. Please help us make sure this information gets into the right hands by sharing our resources with your contacts. And, also, please connect us to any artists who’ve suffered losses in these fires.
CERF+ depends on our network (that’s you!) to help us connect to artists in need of assistance. Thank you for being our valued friends, “ears to the ground,” and important contributors to the Artists Safety Net.
We will keep you updated about our work and what we learn in the wake of these fires.
