We share stories that demonstrate the arts and culture in action, highlighting the myriad ways arts-based programs are supporting and strengthening communities.

We produce a podcast, Creative Responders, to share stories and perspectives from creative leaders, disaster management experts and impacted communities, deepening the conversation around how the arts can repair, rebuild and reunite.

We develop research in partnership with organisations and individuals about the impact of the arts and culture in disaster management, to contribute to building an evidence-base to inform future developments in policy and practice.

We share examples of creative recovery programs through our case study library, to show how arts-based programs are activating creativity and civic participation, providing opportunities for connection and generating new thinking towards future possibilities.
