Creative Recovery covers the growing network of artists and cultural and community workers taking the lead in helping communities recover from the impact of such disasters through creativity.
As we face increasing crises caused by floods, fires, droughts and other natural disasters and now viruses such as COVID-19, the arts can play an important role in the response and recovery process. Arts Mid North Coast have partnered with QLD based organisation, Creative Recovery Network and are working to understand how this can be achieved, by whom and how we can best assist:
- the arts to meaningfully support communities to recover and rebuild;
- the arts to be integrated into and valued as part of broader community recovery efforts;
- local artists and arts workers to gain increased knowledge, skills and confidence to respond to communities in recovery;
- for arts and cultural organisations to enhance their capacity to work with communities in recovery and respond in a coordinated way.
We have created this section to post important networks, studies and projects that we have found to assist artists and arts organisations on the Mid North Coast.
Arts Mid North Coast delivered three Creative Recovery training workshops across the Mid North Coast in March 2022, facilitated by Scotia Monkivitch from the Creative Recovery Network. We are thrilled to have been able to equip more than 50 creative first responders with disaster recovery and preparedness knowledge and facilitation skills to help their communities.
Throughout the second half of 2022 we provided grants for local practitioners to run Creative Recovery projects in our region. Find information about upcoming events and past projects below.
