We built our online and catalog business with the support of many small local and regional arts groups, and their health is essential to our ongoing success. These are not the best of days for this kind of organization.
I was intrigued by a story on NPR’s Morning Edition today about an arts group called Fractured Atlas. Fractured Atlas, a non-profit based in New York, provides much-needed support to artists and arts organizations so that they can function as more effective businesses.
We know that many valuable arts groups will not make it through these challenging economic times, and Fractured Atlas is playing a key role in helping those groups most challenged. They offer a broad range of programs and services, including professional development, access to funding information, insurance and arts advocacy.
Our business has been built on extending credit to arts groups of all sizes, and I have never regretted those decisions. The financial health of local theatre and dance companies, orchestras and performance venues is critical to our own success. We applaud the efforts of Fractured Atlas and others who provide this type of support.
