Sector Support fundraising to help grassroots venues through the COVID-19 crisis
With the current global health crisis having a severe impact on grassroots music venues, Music Venue Trust is offering sector support to try and sustain them through the impacts of COVID-19. To do this we need your URGENT help.
Our Sector Support service is vital to try to do everything we can to stop the permanent closure of these venues resulting from their temporary closure to protect public health. The support we are delivering includes:
-Information gathering on GMVs to understand the impact COVID-19 is having on our sector
-Information sharing by bringing together the most up-to-date information on what GMVs must do to sustain their venue
-Political Representation so we ensure that the needs of GMVs are addressed by government
-Cultural Representation so we ensure that the needs of GMVs are addressed by the music industry and the cultural sector
At this time of crisis, Music Venue Trust wants to be able to offer a high level of engagement to our 650+ Music Venue Alliance members, whilst also maintaining our other core services like our Emergency Response Service.
In order to achieve this, donations raised from this Go Fund Me page will go towards enabling the MVT team to continue running our Sector Support and Emergency Response Services for as long as necessary in these uncertain times.
