Join Americans for the Arts for a live webinar on Nov 29th at 3pm ET! Craig Nutt with CERF+ and Ann Graham with Texans for the Arts will describe a unique problem facing self-employed workers, including artists, after a disaster, and ways you can help.
Did you know that artists are twice as likely to be self-employed as other Americans? In a disaster, loss of tools like kilns and musical instruments places artists in a position of extreme vulnerability by removing their capacity to earn a living at a time when income creation is most critical to get back on their feet. Current FEMA tool replacement assistance specifically excludes self-employed workers from needed tool replacement after a disaster. Tune in at 3pm to learn more & what you can do to help.
