Latest update from WOMAD Festival
The live events industry collapsed overnight in mid-March, and there has been no work since then for the hundreds of thousands of people who make events like WOMAD happen in the UK. Today we are launching a new training bursary scheme, in partnership with the WOMAD Foundation for crew and artists affected by the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the festivals industry. www.womadfoundation.org
At WOMAD, we know as well as anyone how important these people are to making festivals and events happen, and what an extraordinary range of skills they possess. These are skills that can transfer into other areas of our economy now and into an uncertain future.
This community of crew, technicians, caterers, artists, and everyone who makes the difficult look easy, the people who #WeMakeEvents need help.
For more details on how to apply for a bursary if you have been affected, or to donate to the WOMAD Foundation and help us to help the people who make events please go to – www.womadfoundation.org
Thank you for your support! 💙
