So often the creative community doesn’t carry the proper insurance to cover your business in a time of need. 79% of creative based businesses do not carry the correct insurance necessary to protect their business. The lack of adequate business insurance represents a career-threatening financial vulnerability to creatives who are affected by emergencies beyond their control such as fire, theft, and natural disasters. 

CERF+ was started by artists for artists in the craft community as a grassroots mutual aid effort in 1985 and has since emerged as the leading nonprofit organization that uniquely focuses on safeguarding artists’ livelihoods nationwide. CERF+ serves artists who work in craft disciplines by providing a safety net to support strong and sustainable careers. Our core services are education programs, advocacy, network building and emergency relief.

CERF+ is readiness, relief + resilience for studio artists, ensuring that they are as protected as the work they create.

Join CERF+ and others for a discussion about insurance and the actual needs creatives have around protection.

The Insuring Creativity workshop is part of the Craft Your Commerce Workshop Series Beyond the Studio: Financials and Operations.
