“We write because we seek an equitable and science-driven approach to the framing of public health regulations that affect our members: an approach that gives live performing arts (and its pivot to digital content capture and sharing) the same standing as the film and television sector.”
In case you haven’t seen it, here is a copy of a joint appeal to the provincial Ministers of Health, Economic Development and Culture from the Canadian Live Music Association, Orchestras Canada and Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts. As you know, the recent emergency lock down has once again closed the province’s performing arts spaces and prohibited all rehearsals and creation of work for online dissemination.
Any support for this initiative from your agencies and organizations could be a huge help. Please feel free to pass the letter on to any of your members and stakeholders.
