Scene Change: #MissingLiveTheatre
Last week, designers of #SceneChange wrapped our arts centre in a message of hope with pink tape reading #MissingLiveTheatre. This tape has now been removed and will be re-used to envelop another theatre venue or organisation.
#SceneChange is a project created by stage designers to keep theatres visible and to highlight the impact of COVID-19 on the creative industries.
