Why Readiness

Why Readiness? A disaster can put a performing arts organization out of business overnight. Preparedness is the key to resiliency and recovery; the better prepared an organization is, the more quickly and effectively it can respond to emergencies and crises, re-open for performances and programs, and return to normal operations.

How is readiness relevant to my performing arts organization?  Whether you are a producing or presenting organization, and have your own facility or travel between many facilities, being prepared for natural and man-made disasters can help you resume business faster, and better protect your assets and your legacy.

What does the Performing Arts Readiness project do for my organization? The PAR project will provide a variety of information resources, education (through conference presentations, webinars, and onsite classes), tools, and grant funding to help you create or update a disaster plan that is tailored to your organization.
