Success Stories

  • The Community Emergency Relief Fund [a partnership of Emergency Arts and Springboard for the Arts] exists, and has thrived, due to Amelia’s leadership, dedication, and ability to share her knowledge...Emergency response is a topic I knew nothing of prior to our working together and, thanks to Amelia, quickly became the most rewarding work of my career.
    Nikki Hunt, Program Director, Health & Wellness, Springboard for the Arts
  • Amelia Brown gave a powerful and stirring keynote address at our 2020 TYA/USA Virtual Festival & Conference. She brought clarity and insight into the types of emergencies, the intersectionality of emergencies, and the ways artists can engage during crisis. Her presentation was a true highlight of the event.
