The Gabriola Chamber is developing an online event series to help bridge the financial gaps that our professional artists have incurred due to the COVID19 crisis.
The Arts & Culture sector is a key economic driver for our island communities. Ticketed events and shows are a huge revenue stream for artists, which the current situation of ‘Stay Home – Save Lives’ has ended.
And in this time of social distancing and self isolation the general public is turning to the arts for joy, mental wellbeing and connection.
There is many options for free streaming going on and we applaud the generosity of online communities bringing entertainment into our homes.
This initiative is not to compete with what is out there, but rather offer a platform for local artists (of all kinds) to offer some financial support while they make plans to pivot and create new streams of income.
