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

Creative Recovery, as a framework and a process, requires skilled facilitation, consistent support and resourcing. It is a process of connecting and embedding creative approaches within emergency management.


Our activation framework enables Creative Recovery Network to make disaster response programing decisions based on accurate, unbiased and representative needs assessments. With this we will ensure transparent programs and project development based on objective needs assessment as the sole basis for our arts mobilisation.

Building the Creative Recovery Network helps build the arts and culture industry at large. The network offers Australian artists an opportunity to foster long-term collaborative relationships within a diversity of sectors and with their local and national communities.


First Peoples First

First People’s culture and arts are the foundation blocks of Australia. Care for Country is a driving force for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The Creative Recovery Network works with the First Peoples of Australia to ensure their culture, arts and knowledges around caring for and healing this country are the guiding structure for our vision and working processes.


Arts and culture are the central elements of our work and why we come together. We strive to ensure that all aspects of our work are seated within and through arts engagement and practice.

Carbon Neutral

We take seriously our need to reduce our carbon footprint. In joining the Creative Climate Coalition we pledge to:

  • Take action to make our work more sustainable and carbon neutral.
  • Speak out and up, using our voices to accelerate positive environmental change.
  • Jointly support one another, sharing good practices campaigns and knowledge.
  • Use creativity to find, and scale, solutions.

Resouce Library

We are building a library of case studies and resources to support the arts sector in preparedness and recovery
