Art sector workers are now safe to return to studios, rehearsal rooms, or art centers to prepare for work under Covid-19 guidelines.
A sector that provided strength and solidarity during the lockdown is now fighting for its survival. 35,000 staff of the events industry were left with little or no means of livelihood.
Continued and unchanged rates of PUP and EWSS support for artists is the most immediate point of the pre-submission budget that the NCFA is trying to press for, that’s what the NCFA sectoral meeting today revealed.
We continue our Dublin Fringe Festival 2020 focus, but first discuss the NCFA's progress with the government and arts council. Featuring: Aideen Howard, Dylan Coburn Gray, Dan Colley, Fionnuala Gygax, Timothy O'Mahony, Orla Graham, Kirby Thompson, and Witt Tarantino.
Much has been talked about the people on the stage, but behind the scenes Production Managers and Stage Managers are working to address the return to theatre safely. Featuring: Sophie Ridley, Liam Fitzgerald, Fiona Keller, Eamonn Fox, Tom Creed, Emma O'Grady, and Senator David Norris.
