STANDING IN SOLIDARITY WITH PERFORMANCE INDUSTRY WORKERS

SUPPORT

Project Brief

#TogetherForTomorrow aims at providing financial aid to the performance industry workers impacted by COVID-19.

The current situation with COVID-19 pandemic has led to an unprecedented lockdown and cancellation of all live shows. This crisis has put our industry workers – ranging from sound engineers to tentwalas at great risk due to no events happening right now or for the foreseeable future. While artists are now going digital and have found alternatives, the freelancers and daily wagers of this industry are severely affected owing to the onground nature of their work. 

#TogetherForTomorrow will serve as an emotional gesture that will give financial respite to these unsung heroes and a sense of belongingness.
