Alliance for Response: A Public-Private Partnership for the Arts and Culture Sector 


The “whole community” concept underscores the importance of cross-sector collaboration in strengthening a community’s resilience. This 90-minute webinar will explore a unique public-private partnership between cultural heritage and emergency management professionals called Alliance for Response (AFR). Launched in 2003, this program has connected more than 800 museums, libraries, archives, and other collecting institutions across the country with their local first responders and emergency managers.


An overview of the program, administered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation, will be followed by a close look at one AFR network – AFR-Miami – which is co-chaired by an emergency manager and a cultural steward. Other AFR networks will likewise share how their network has influenced local planning efforts and enhanced the protection of cultural and historic resources. The webinar will conclude with examples of federal guidance on protecting these resources. Each segment will offer ample time for Q&A from participants.
