Portland Alliance for Response
<http://www.heritageemergency.org/initiatives/alliance-for-response/networks/portland/>*,
a local network of arts and culture institutions, including* Oregon
Historical Society <https://www.ohs.org/>, Oregon Symphony
<https://www.orsymphony.org/>, P5 Centers for the Arts
<https://www.portland5.com/>, Portland Art Museum
<https://portlandartmuseum.org/>, Lewis and Clark College
<https://college.lclark.edu/library/>, Portland State University
<https://library.pdx.edu/>, and Portland Bureau of Emergency Management
<https://www.portlandoregon.gov/pbem/>, is pleased to announce that we have
received a grant from Performing Arts Readiness
<https://performingartsreadiness.org/>, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation. Portland Alliance for Response works with local cultural
institutions, first responders, and emergency managers in the Portland,
Oregon, metro area to develop relationships that foster mutual
understanding. The grant will allow the Alliance to expand its reach to
include performing arts organizations in a cooperative network to safeguard
our cultural heritage and artistic legacy through effective communication
and coordination of disaster preparedness and emergency response efforts.



Over the next several months, we will work with a consultant to create an
organizational structure and strategic goals. Our planning process will
culminate in a networking event in 2019 to build membership from a broad
array of performing arts organizations, libraries, archives, museums,
emergency management agencies, and first response services.
