"Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative"

Kennedy Center to Help Arts Programs in Economic Trouble Washington Post Staff Writer

After a string of successes rescuing arts groups from near-death, Kaiser is now enlisting Kennedy Center managers to help nonprofit arts organizations that are reeling from the recession.

"Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative" was announced this morning. Essentially, the program is a high-tech support service through which arts administrators can talk to the center's personnel about shrinking income, budget-conscious audiences and other difficulties in keeping the doors open.

"Arts in Crisis" has a Web site where organizations can register: http://www.artsincrisis.org. Assistance will be provided through e-mails, telephone calls, Web chats or site visits.
