Imaging building a whole set for a major ballet performance, then, due to the pandemic, having to pull it all down again, before any performances. That’s what happened to Tim Moore, in Calgary, in March 2020. What’s Tim doing now while we wait out the pandemic? What are others in arts and entertainment doing? And what organizations exist to support people in an industry that’s used to feast and famine, but never a famine like This?
Today we speak to that set builder, Tim Moore, and also Cat MacKeigen, Director of External Relations at Strategic Arts Management. We also speak to David Hope Executive Director of the AFC whose mission it is to help Canadian entertainment professionals maintain their health, dignity and ability to work.
