From Monday, May 31st until Friday, June 4th, in response to the absence of fairness for the live performing arts in the reopening framework, and our ongoing struggle to be heard, the live performing arts sector is now calling on all those who care about the future of artists, performers, and arts workers in the Province to help us amplify our concerns.
#FairnessForArtsON is a plea for regulatory fairness and action to support our artists, performers, and arts workers that connect Ontario and Canada with extraordinary music and performing arts experiences. There are 3 key recommendations:
1) Allow artists to rehearse as soon as the stay-at-home order is lifted so they can prepare for reopening
2) Allow artists and organizations to livestream and record in venues as soon as the stay-at-home order is lifted, since these are low-risk activities that serve the public at home
3) Outline clear percentage-based capacities indoors and distanced–based capacities outdoors for all steps of the plan to help organizations work on reopening
We would highly encourage you to follow the link below to write to your MPPs, Ontario Ministers, and the Premier to help us call for #FairnessForArtsON. Thank you so much for your continued support and all we do.
