Hurricane Harvey Relief

Posted: Thursday, August 31st, 2017 at 1:55 pm in Field News

The NPN/VAN staff, Board of Directors and Partners are here to support our colleagues and artists impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are thankful that our Houston based NPN/VAN Partners’ staffs, DiverseWorks, Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) and Project Row Houses are safe and receiving first response assistance. The road to recovery will be long and challenging. The national arts and cultural field must collectively support our colleagues and individual artists during their time of need now and in the future. We will continue to post updates on recovery efforts and links to resources.
