PREPAREDNESS A, B, C's & Beginning to Build Your Network
People often feel creating an organizational Preparedness or Business Continuity Plan is hard. However, there are basic techniques you can quickly learn; in this participatory workshop, you’ll work with others to start creating yours, build a peer support network and walk away with tangible assets you will use and the Preparedness Mindset you need to finish the work.

Presenter: Amy Schwartzman
Amy Schwartzman was a professional dancer in NYC for 11 years, working with Meredith Monk, Blondell Cummings and others. Her work as an artist informs her work at the intersection of arts and emergency management, which she has been doing since 9/11, after serving as the Executive Director of two arts organizations.

After 9/11, Amy was hired to work for the New York Arts Recovery Fund, created to help NYC’s artists and arts organizations recover from that disaster. Since 2007, she has been a consultant to the National Coalition for Arts’ Preparedness and Emergency Response (NCAPER) and a member of its Steering Committee since 2018. She also works with the Performing Arts Readiness Project (PAR), where she has designed and taught webinars on Networking for Disaster Management in the Performing Arts and Community Recovery through Arts and Culture, as well as helped organizations create business continuity plans.

Amy was brought to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria to work with the RAND Corporation on the Island’s recovery plan, focusing on the recovery of artists, artisans and arts organizations and worked for FEMA in NYS after Superstorm Sandy toward the same end; at that time, she helped design and facilitate the creation of CultureAID with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
