The arts industry is in crisis.
70% of the arts workforce are freelancers and a very high proportion have lost all of their work into 2021. Arts organisations are at risk of closure and/or having to make significant cuts to navigate the harsh economic environment.
We don’t know when theatres can fully reopen and there are limited other ways that we can generate income – or enough income to offset costs. Private sources of support are harder than ever to come by.
PDSW has lost nearly a quarter of its income due to Covid. It is no exaggeration to say that we and the industry are in a perilous state.
It is a case of ‘Use it or Lose it’.
Please donate or support us in any way you can and shout about how much you value what we add to the quality of life.
We recognise the hardships across our industry as we join the #LightItInRed campaign & witness the PDSW building light up red at 20:00 tonight in honour of this movement.
You can take actions to!
