Harrison has been an instrumental past of the Live Event Community execution team since its early days as an important resource for out-of-work workers. His knowledge of technology and social media made him an ideal candidate to maintain communication though Instagram, an important conduit to younger workers. His countless hours preparing for the Light Up Live execution on 22 September definitely paid off with the result being a social reach of 9 million and almost 12k posts over the week.
Harrison has been in the live event community for 12 years. Currently he is the head of audiovideo at Isabel Bader theatre at Victoria University. He also worked at TIFF Bell Lightbox as an Assistant Booth Manager before COVID-19. Pre-covid, Harrison spent his time supporting First Nations (1492 Landback Lane), Teachers, and the Encampment Safety Network (Instagram). During the pandemic he has learned how to make scrambled eggs like Gordon Ramsay (it doesn’t involve profanity or shouting).
