Thank you for standing in solidarity with ACE and the other CapNY creative businesses and organizations that have been greatly impacted by the pandemic. Originally, the #CapNYRedAlert movement was centered around one day of action, November 1st, where we would all shine our red lights bright to show support of the creative industries who add so much vibrancy to our region.
Through numerous conversations over the past month, we have come to these realizations:
- This is a movement that needs to be carried on far through November 1st, and therefore, ACE will be keeping a (red) light shining on this critical sector of the economy during our recovery efforts. We ask you to continue sharing #CapNYRedAlert information via your social media and digital platforms.
- It will likely be easier for media outlets to carry these stories and statistics after the November 3rd election, which has been dominating social media and other coverage for months. It was very difficult — if not impossible — to shoehorn another issue into this overwhelming news cycle.
Here, you can find articles regarding the impact of the pandemic on the arts, including profiles of local leaders in the creative industries from organizations like SPAC, The Hyde Collection, and Troy Savings Bank Music Hall that show how the CapNY is dealing with, and overcoming, current challenges. We ask that you share these with your audience to raise awareness of this campaign.
Thank you for being a part of the #CapNYRedAlert movement. Together, we will rebuild, support one another, and overcome these overwhelming challenges.
