Dear Friends, We pride ourselves on being a small, national arts service organization making a big difference in the lives of professional artists. So, during these last two challenging years marked by a combination of the lingering recession and unprecedented extreme weather events, we are especially proud that we have been able both to expand our program offerings and dramatically increase the number of artists we served.

We attribute our resilience and growth to two core tenets: mutuality, the charitable ethic of a community taking care of its own; and connectivity, building networks and partnerships that extend our reach and achieve strength in numbers. The creativity and commitment of a broad spectrum of stakeholders — artists, faculty, collectors, arts advocates, arts businesses, arts presenters, non-profit organizations and public agencies, and private foundations — has facilitated our efforts, whether for longstanding or new endeavors. Cultivation of new collegial relationships with state, regional, and national emergency relief providers has also proved beneficial in the recovery process Judy Gordon, Chair Craft Advocate

after several recent natural disasters.

Staying attuned to general trends within the craft field and to the specific needs of our constituents has been another principle guiding our organizational and program development. From conversations with hundreds of artists and organizations about the impact of our work over our first 25 years and their vision for CERF+ in the future, CERF+ board and staff crafted a new strategic plan which we put into action in 2011. Its objectives, which include increasing our emergency assistance package, have shaped program direction and the allocation of resources during this biennium. In addition, in 2012 with the help of CERF+ trustees and friends, we organized a series of focus groups across the country to lay the groundwork for a 2013 national study about the current status of craft artists (a repeat of a research project we did in 2004).

Thus, “working together to keep artists working” is the theme of this biennial report covering Fiscal Years 2011– 12. Highlighted in the report are information, stories, and testimonials that yield a composite picture of our multiple roles as one of the nation’s few full-time “arts responders”— providing emergency assistance programs for craft artists, educational resources and training opportunities to help all artists be more disaster ready and resilient, and leadership to improve the disaster safety net for artists and the organizations that serve them.

Your support and involvement give us great hope for our future — that we will continue to be effective in our response to artists facing setbacks due to disasters and in our educational campaign to help artists better safeguard their careers. In turn, we hope reading this report will reinforce pride in your affiliation with CERF+ and inspire renewed dedication to our work.

EMERGENCY RELIEF Programs and Services Assisting Craft Artists with Short and Long Term Recovery

Mr. Imagination, a CERF+ beneficiary, with CERF+ board member Eddie Bernard in Tuscaloosa, AL

Due to an increase in the number of significant natural disasters, these past two years have been the second busiest for CERF+’s emergency relief assistance since its inception in 1985. Forty-two percent of the artists CERF+ assisted suffered losses in natural disasters. These included:

✚ Devastating floods in Laguna Beach, CA in December 2010

✚ Massive tornadoes in Joplin, MO and Tuscaloosa, AL in the Spring of 2011

✚ Hurricane Irene along the eastern seaboard in August 2011

✚ Wildfires in Texas and Colorado, Summer 2011 and 2012

Duncan Johnson’s Vermont home and studio was devastated by Tropical Storm Irene.

To meet these weather-related challenges, CERF+ expanded its assistance by: increasing its pre- and post-disaster outreach, raising the maximum grant amount from $2,500 to $3,000; restructuring our loan program so that more artists can access the maximum loan of $8,000; and adopting a case management approach to providing services to artists.

In FY 2011–12, CERF+ provided emergency grants, loans, and brokered assistance totaling $281,128. This assistance included:

✚ Grants totaling $161,967 to 88 artists

✚ No-interest loans totaling $73,600 to 23 artists

✚ Brokered assistance totaling $45,561 to 33 artists

CERF+’s monthly e-newsletter and social media also provided more than 12,000 artists and organizations with information about its disaster relief assistance, as well as tips and links to relevant preparedness and recovery resources. Artists and organizations, in turn, helped us get the word out by subscribing to and circulating CERF+’s e-communications, sharing mailing lists, “Liking” CERF+ on Facebook, and following and re-tweeting CERF+’s Twitter messages.

Businesses helping Beneficiaries When Hurricane Irene toppled a tree and put a 10’ by 8’ hole in Kim Eubank and Will Armstrong’s roof, they thought they were covered by a rider in their insurance policy. Little did they know that their insurance company had changed the policy, excluding the craft business they ran from their home in Richmond, VA, and leaving Kim and Will ineligible to collect. Thanks to a generous booth fee waiver from the American Craft Council, as well as a grant and loan from CERF+, Kim and Will were able to exhibit at ACC’s February 2012 Baltimore show. Says Kim, “We are overwhelmed with the support that CERF+ and ACC granted. It really makes us feel supported by the greater craft community. We will certainly ‘pay it forward’ when we are able.”

In-kind donations brokered by CERF+ from a variety of businesses are another important component of its relief and recovery services to its beneficiaries. Replacement equipment and supplies help accelerate an artist’s ability to return to work, while a booth fee waiver can bring in much-needed income as an exhibitor at a show. Examples of booth fee waivers from FY 2011–12:

✚ American Craft Council and CraftBoston provided waivers to artists affected by Hurricane Irene

✚ Buyers Market of American Craft, Contemporary Crafts Market, the Denver Gift Show, and provided

waivers to artists affected by illness and accident

✚ Festival International de Louisiane provided a waiver to an artist affected by a home and studio fire

The Impact of CERF+’s Support RED WELDON SANDLIN: Our hands are the most valuable tools 2011 CERF+ ASSISTANCE We never think we will be the ones that may have to ask for help when an unfortunate accident happens that takes us out of our studio and our way of making a living. A broken wrist and then not sure if my hand would ever move again after surgery was pretty scary going. Our hands are the most valuable tools. My gallery rep, Leslie Ferrin, suggested, “Call CERF+. You help them with artwork for auctions.” The staff could not have been more helpful in the grant process. That grant helped me immensely at Red Weldon Sandlin, “Wisdom from a TEAny Star,” ceramic

a most difficult time, including being able to ship artwork to a show.

OLIVIA BATCHELDER: A big thank you 2011 CERF+ ASSISTANCE A big thank you for your generous assistance with a grant and a no-interest loan. Flood insurance, volunteer workers, and donations from local organizations helped as well, but you were there immediately with a compassionate ear, very little red tape, and a check. I’ve been through a lot, am wiser for it, and things are better than ever! I couldn’t have gotten back to work without you.


EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH Services Expanding Artist Career Protection Resources

CERF+ introduced important new educational resources to our collection of information tools and training opportunities to help artists at all career stages be more disaster-ready and disasterresilient. These complement and enrich CERF+’s Studio Protector toolkit, a comprehensive reference guide (print and online) about emergency planning, response, and recovery. By enrolling craft-focused organizations, regional and national artist service organizations, local and state arts councils, and other arts funders as CERF+’s conduits to their members and constituents, plus recruitment of arts professionals as its field ambassadors, CERF+’s artist preparedness initiative built momentum. CERF+ staff and board met with the American Craft Council and Northern Clay Center during a 2012 trip to the Twin Cities.

Business Insurance A recent CERF+ survey revealed the sobering fact that 70% of craft artists are not properly insured for business losses, and that nearly 25% mistakenly believe that their homeowner’s insurance automatically covers losses to a home-based studio. In response, CERF+ updated its listing of insurance plans for artists (located on the Studio Protector website) and also produced and disseminated three “myth-busting” pieces:

✚ Two humorous computer animations “Do I Need Property Insurance for My Art


2,200 distributed by end of FY20


Studio?” and “Do I Need Liability Insurance for My Art Studio?” were released

in 2011. These media shorts have been actively used by CERF+ staff in

workshop presentations (and are featured on the Studio Protector website)

Videos on business insurance, contracts, and how to work with an attorney,

featuring interviews with the director of Nashville’s Volunteer Lawyers for

the Arts and personnel from the Nashville Public Arts program, which were

released in 2012

The Business Insurance Guidebook for Artists in 2012, a 12-page pocket-sized

booklet outlining the basics of business insurance and how to get coverage

Artist Readiness Training Programs CERF+ collaborated on three half-day emergency preparedness boot camps for more than 50 artists and arts professionals in partnership with local sponsors in:

✚ San Diego (San Diego Foundation and Synergy)

✚ Nashville (Nashville Metro Arts Commission, Volunteer Lawyers

for the Arts, and Tennessee Arts and Crafts Association)

✚ Minneapolis/St. Paul (Springboard for the Arts)

Potter Will Swanson and CERF+’s Craig Nutt discuss insurance during CERF+’s 2012 trip to the Twin Cities.

One of the most effective ways for CERF+ to reach large numbers of artists throughout the country is to teach arts professionals how to blend vital information about emergency preparedness into their professional development and professional practice curricula. CERF+ organized a number of distance learning and live sessions in 2011–12:

✚ 36 arts business consultants, program administrators, and teaching artists participated in one of four free “Train the Trainer”

webinars, a tutorial to familiarize them with the Studio Protector as a disaster planning tool

It’s a lot easier to be an advocate when you have a direction to move in and something to work from. The information provided by CERF+ regarding disaster planning is vital information that all artists should get their hands on and include as part of their professional work model. The webinar was great and got me charged up. — Megan Burke (Florida Department of Cultural Affairs)

✚ Four faculty from Maryland Institute College of Art, College of Visual Arts, (St. Paul, MN), Haywood Community College

(Hendersonville, NC), and Memphis College of Art, attended an intensive weekend training with CERF+ staff in

Nashville, September 2012, for teaching CERF+’s pilot program on career protection to art students

Electronic and Print Media Outreach CERF+, through expanded use of traditional and new media, stepped up its messaging about the value of a proactive approach to emergencies and about its resources to help artists navigate disasters, large and small:

✚ A Studio Protector “tip of the month” became an ongoing feature in its monthly e-news (sent to 10,000+ individuals

and organizations)

✚ CERF+ produced a set of public service ads featuring “before and after” images provided by artists who have been through

disasters. These emergency preparedness awareness ads are prominently displayed on the CERF+ website and on a

promotional handout card distributed at events, conferences, and workshops (by both CERF+ staff and its field ambassadors),

and in trade publications and newsletters

✚ Rapid targeted outreach through emails and social media about vital information and resources available through CERF+ and

the Studio Protector website to artists and arts organizations affected by the extreme weather events of 2011–12 resulted in

increased site traffic


FUNDRAISING Building a Network of Supporters

CERF+’s effectiveness as a national arts responder is made possible by the solidarity of a growing fellowship of supporters. To build on its annual fundraising activities, CERF+ also launched two new longer-term giving programs:

✚ Securing grant funding and subsequent renewed funding totaling $275,000 for

CERF+’s preparedness initiatives and leadership in the National Coalition for

Preparedness and Emergency Response from the Nathan Cummings Foundation,

Joan Mitchell Foundation, and the Windgate Charitable Trust

✚ The Campaign for CERF+’s Future, CERF+’s first major gifts campaign with a goal of

raising $1.6 million to: expand CERF+’s artists’ services, create a disaster-ready fund

for CERF+, and to build an operating reserve

✚ The CERF+ Legacy Circle to celebrate the financial commitments of artists, show

producers, collectors, gallery owners, and other friends who are including CERF+

in their estate planning

Fundraising activities in FY11— FY12 include: ✚ Adding 619 new donors to CERF+’s list

of supporters and advocates, increasing

the total number of CERF+ supporters

to 7,507 individuals, businesses, non-

profit organizations and foundations

✚ Raising $448,683 in annual fund

contributions from 1,220 donors

✚ Meeting a $100,000 challenge grant

from the Windgate Charitable

Foundation to raise $200,000 in new

and increased giving

✚ Enrolling 56 galleries, as well as

numerous individual artists, schools,

and online retailers throughout the

U.S. to host 155 events raising $83,104

for CERF+ through A Season for CERF+

and other independent fundraisers CERF+ was the beneficiary of CraftNewYork, a new juried show by Artrider Productions featuring 100 of the finest craft artists in America, which contributed $36,336 for CERF+ programs and services


A Sampling of Creative Fundraising Activities The Philadelphia Invitational Furniture Show (PIFS), held annually in the beautiful 23rd Street Armory, donated the proceeds of a silent auction held during its preview party to CERF+ in both FY11 and FY12. Says PIFS director Joshua Markel, “Over the 19 years we have been putting together our show of furniture and furnishings makers, we have gotten a close-in picture of the trials and tribulations faced by our exhibitors. Many of them have businesses that are just scraping by and any misfortune can push them over the edge and out of the field altogether. In such times, there is no organization other than CERF+ there to help them. More than a few of our exhibitors have been beneficiaries and we, as they, are grateful for the role CERF+ plays in keeping the craft world whole.”

Swannanoa, North Carolina’s Black Mountain Studios hosted “Fine American Handmade Craft for Clinkers” as part of their 2011 participation in both A Season for CERF+ and American Craft Week. Visitors to their studio bearing an old mug and a $10 donation to CERF+ traded in for a new artist-made mug. The old mugs were donated to the Veterans Association. “But wait,” says owner/artist Maud Boleman, “it gets better.” To top it off, a photograph of the donor holding both their old and their new mug was taken (a new twist on “mug shots”) and the pictures were posted to Facebook where visitors could vote for their favorite photo.

The Buyers Market of American Craft and the American Craft Council’s donations make it possible for CERF+ to hold fundraisers at their shows. Art in Motion’s freight transportation donation makes it possible for CERF+ to get to them.

“Why I Support CERF+”:

Jonathan Simons

With about a dozen people on staff at his specialty woodcraft business, Jonathan’s Spoons in Kempton, Pennsylvania, Jonathan Simons isn’t living on the edge anymore — but he remembers those days. That’s why he has been a regular contributor and major donor to CERF+ since 1996 and why he’s given up to $10,000 to the organization annually.

In deciding to increase his gift Jonathan said he was inspired by a fellow craft artist’s generosity. He was also motivated by reading an article about CERF+’s support to a craft artist who had been devastated by one of the 2004 hurricanes in Florida. “I’m providing support to people who are one-person shops — just as I might have needed when I was a one-person shop.”


RESEARCH and Advocacy Multiplying Resources through Collaboration

Through research and advocacy, CERF+ is able to amplify its services to the field. Ongoing documentation of trends and needs of artists and creative communities help ensure that CERF+’s own programs remain relevant. Information-gathering efforts also help identify gaps in support systems for artists in the U.S. and to craft a larger action agenda, both within the arts sector and outside of it — to emergency management agencies and business service providers. Like so much of what CERF+ does, collegial outreach and collective activism are critical to building awareness of problems that artists face in the wake of disasters and to providing access to new or
