Today we launch #MissingLiveTheatre
As businesses begin to reopen, the doors of theatres remain firmly shut. We want to show our theatres across the UK and Ireland some LOVE, and highlight the ongoing impact of Covid-19, and what we as an industry, our audiences, and local communities are missing. #SCENECHANGE began as a small email exchange ‘Dialogue in Strange Times’ between a group of set & costume designers. Now we are a wide community of theatre makers growing to over 1000 members, coming together in conversation and action in support of theatre.
We are taking to the streets and painting our own roadmap… HELP SPREAD THE LOVE!
Any members of our community who would like to join in and wrap their local theatre building in some love… Please go to the FORUM and make a post with your location - please check if someone has already posted your location and if so, add your name to the comments section of their post and we can start making local action teams!
#scenechange will be in touch and let you know the next steps…
For theatres who wish to join in the #MISSINGLIVETHEATRE campaign…
Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
#SCENECHANGE will post in the forum theatres who are looking for love and try to link theatres up with local designers from the #scenechange community for on-site installation. The tape will remain in place for up to one week before being removed and reused to envelop another theatre.
LET’S GET TOGETHER AND GET VISIBLE!
