In an industry where the show must go on, the performing
arts have taken a significant hit with forced postponements and cancellations
due to COVID-19.
In response, the Surrey School District is joining
organizations, groups and individuals across Canada for Light Up Live, a show of support for the
arts and performing arts workers on the Day of Visibility for the Live Event
Community. On Tuesday, Sept. 22, an hour after sundown, the Bell Performing Arts Centre
will light up red to raise awareness for the live event industry, which has
been in the dark since the start of the pandemic.
“The arts are an important part of our district and we want
to recognize the community contributions of artists and performers, as well as
technical and operational staff, who haven’t had a stage since early this year,”
said Liane Ricou, Associate Director of Business Development with the district.
“Our theatre may be empty but we still want to celebrate the arts and encourage
creative expression among students and the public.”
the Bell Performing Arts Centre hosts numerous live arts events and shows every
year, the district also wants to use this opportunity to thank local arts,
performing and community organizations for their hard work over the years in
sustaining the arts in Surrey.
“We know that the arts cannot happen in traditional ways
right now,” said Ricou. “Light Up Live is one small way we are able to come
together to acknowledge the role the arts have played, and will play again one
day, in our community.”
