Several venues across Canada lit up red on September 22nd to show support for the live event industry as part of the #LightUpLive campaign.
Spaces from coast to coast turned red to raise awareness for “an industry that is still dark.” The red lights were to show support for “the many performers, creators, technical, logistical, and management support personnel who drive a $100 billion Canadian economic engine.”
“The effect of shutting down a $100 billion industry in Canada will have unimaginable impacts on both companies and individuals,” event organizers explain on their website. “Already, the vast majority of live event workers have been out of work or on government support Since March, with no end in sight.”
