First to shut down, last to reopen.

The We Make Events Campaign, which seeks to represents the needs of the multitude of struggling events industry workers all over the globe, launched an international day of action yesterday.

Red lights lit up event spaces and public installations from South Africa to Slovenia and countless countries in between, whilst profile photos across social media were replaced with an unmissable red dot in support.

The campaign, which high profile event spaces, promoters and celebrities across the world have put their name to, seeks to raise and direct funds towards the multitude of behind the scenes workers, many of whom have been left out of government support packages.
