From the Document: "Art is all around us - in murals, sculpture, literature, and music. It sparks conversation and bonds communities. In the wake of a disaster, the arts can be called upon to offer solace, comfort, and connection to help communities heal. They can be a symbol of resilience during recovery. Art can resonate deeply with people and inspire civic creativity that could otherwise be difficult to initiate. This 'Guide to Expanding Mitigation' explores how community officials can work with the arts and culture sector to support hazard mitigation, including the planning process. This guide is a starting place for community officials to initiate a conversation with arts and culture partners to make investments in mitigation relevant and risk information accessible, while building the knowledge and capacity of the entire community."
