GYST DO IT! With CERF+ The Artists Safety Net
Today’s guest is Cornelia Carey, Director of CERF+ The Artist Safety Net, started by artists for artists over 30 years ago in the craft community as a grassroots mutual aid effort.
CERF+ has since emerged as the leading nonprofit organization that uniquely focuses on safeguarding artists’ livelihoods nationwide, through education, resources, grants and loans. CERF+ has provided close to two million dollars to more than one thousand craft-based artists in need of emergency financial assistance because of a major setback in their studio practice due to illness, accident, fire, or natural disaster.
The CERF+ website www.cerfplus.org has information on protecting one’s studio through preparedness and insurance, relief programs, peer advice, practical how-to advice related to fixing damaged art works and how to apply for assistance, and more.
