#scenechange began as an email exchange ‘Dialogue in Strange Times’ between a small group of UK Set & Costume Designers during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent closures of our theatre industry during 2020.
We are now a wide reaching community of theatre designers and practitioners growing to over 1500 members.
Organised and run by a small group of volunteers, brought together through our shared interest in ART, ADVOCACY and ACTION in support of the theatre industry and its arts workforce.
As businesses in other sectors began to reopen, the doors of theatres remained firmly shut, continuing to do so well into 2021. We want to show our theatres and community across the UK and beyond some LOVE. Highlighting both the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on our sector and profession and what we as an industry, our audiences, and local communities are missing from this now blasted cultural landscape in the UK.
