Take Action Now and Help Rebuild Nova Scotia's Live Performance Sector

A Roadmap for Recovering: Rebuilding Nova Scotia's Live Performance Sector

We Are Stronger Together

The time for action is now and we need your voice to ensure a successful post-pandemic recovery and rebuilding of the live performance sector. The Nova Scotia Live Performance Recovery Coalition is being created to tackle front-line advocacy and communicate the critical need for both emergency and recovery-focused investment in our sector.

The coalition is working to advance the following key points

  • Key point #1: Lifeline - The live performance sector in Nova Scotia must be provincially recognized as a “hardest hit sector” that requires critical emergency investment, for both nonprofits and private enterprises, in the current fiscal year to bridge the gap to the recovery phase of the pandemic crisis.

  • Key point #2: Recovery - The Operational Support for Cultural Organizations Program has not seen a budget increase in over 20 years. Since then inflation has grown 50% and continues to grow as a result of the pandemic. New investment for operations will facilitate the stability required for a successful economic recovery in the post-pandemic world.

  • Key point #3: Build Back Better - New investment in equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives, sponsorship matching, live presentation programs, human resources, and consumer confidence marketing projects will stimulate an efficient and robust recovery.
