NEW YORK (AP) - New York City has launched an aid and recovery network aimed at helping cultural organizations and artists before, during and after disasters.

The Department of Cultural Affairs and the Office of Emergency Management says CultureAID has been created in direct response to Superstorm Sandy.

Many art facilities were flooded and works of arts were damaged or lost.

The agencies say the network will provide first response resources more efficiently to help cultural groups and artists recover more quickly from future disasters.

CultureAID will streamline and reduce redundancies of the resources that were made available to the cultural community after Sandy. It will coordinate and share that information from other official sources instead of originating its own.
