The Creative Recovery Network is a not-for-profit Australian organisation that secures and promotes the critical role of the arts in disaster preparedness and recovery efforts.

Typically an afterthought when planning community recovery, the Creative Recovery Network aims to get arts and culture sector a ‘seat at the table’ when the responses are being planned. We demonstrate the value and importance of integrating arts and culture into disaster recovery from the ground up. We are the arts-ambulance ready to respond.

The Creative Recovery Network is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Creative Recovery Network acknowledges the country, culture and traditional custodians of the land upon which we walk, work and live. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present and future of Indigenous nations in Australia and abroad. We acknowledge that Australian Aboriginal sovereignty was never ceded.
