Who are we?

We are a small group of Toronto technicians and producers who live and breathe live events. Like you, we watched this March while the entire live event industry disappeared overnight, in order to reduce community spread of COVID-19. We are committed to working with ALL members of the live event community to:

  1. ensure that all live event workers are able to pay their bills
  2. communicate the unique needs of our sector to all levels of government
  3. work with the appropriate agencies to discuss resumption of live events when we are able, and allow our workers to get back to the show – be it in a convention centre, a festival ground, a theatre or a hotel ballroom.
