Creative Recovery Network

is a specialist service provider and advocate for culture and the arts within the emergency management sector. We partner with government, community service, and private sector providers who work in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

We strive to support the work of creative practitioners preparing and responding to disaster through three platforms of work.


To have governments of all levels recognise the value of Creative Recovery strategies in Australian communities.

  1. LEAD

To be recognised as the leading organisation of community arts and cultural development practices in preparedness and response to natural disasters.


To have a strong network of specifically trained creative practitioners available to respond and work in communities impacted by a disaster.


We have three key priorities of engagement:

Local Government

Build more connected and resilient communities recovering from natural disasters

Community Recovery Committees

Deliver informed and impactful advice to local communities and councils to respond and recover from natural disasters.

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Support the wellbeing of diverse communities recovering from the impact of natural disasters in regional and remote Australia.
