On Wednesday, the 7th October 2020 at 7.30pm there will be an Arts industry social media takeover. All individuals and venues involved within the arts are invited to take to social media ...

The Arts Industry needs your support on Wednesday!

The Arts Industry needs your support on Wednesday!


They will be sharing images that showcase why they're the best at what they do. This includes amazing performances, singing, acting, dancing, playing an instrument, painting and a whole lot more. But it doesn't just stop at venues and artists!"

"Are you in technical, front of house, backstage, costume?"

Then share photographs of you at work, showing off just what you do and what you love. Are you a fan of the arts? Then share pictures of you at a show, meeting your favourite artists, or you at the stage door and more. Are you at theatre school? Share images of you in training, in rehearsals, in a performance.

This is the time that theatre and its artists need to be heard and need the support. We've been told that theatres 'aren't viable' and our artists 'are not skilled'. It's time to show the government that they are wrong, and we all need to fight back.

At 7.30pm this coming Wednesday, we have to flood our social media channels with images of the arts at its best from everyone involved. Use the hashtags #industrytakeover #morethanviable #notlowskilled #savethearts.

The shows will go on. Help us make it happen.

Until next time ...
