Theatre Industry Bands Together to Support Ukraine

As it tends to do in times of crisis, the theatre industry has banded together to support Ukraine and its citizens. Among those are a Broadway production and several performing arts institutions.For context, the country was invaded by Russia on February 24, which has since devolved into a major crisis, with nearly 3 million Ukrainians fleeing the destruction to neighboring European countries. Many have remained behind to fight against Putin’s troops. In the weeks since the conflict began, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly called on the world to send aid to support the refugees, citizens trapped in their homeland, and those serving on the front lines.

Carson Elrod On Testifying For In Front Of Congress and Being An #ArtsHero

The second anniversary of the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic is fast approaching. Many facets of society have returned to a sort of “new normal,” but the arts and culture sector of the economy still needs help as the economic effects of the pandemic still loom. So, members of the creative economy banded together to ask for that help. Advocates for arts and culture testified before the Small Business Committee in a Congressional House Hearing titled “The Power, Peril, and Promise of the Creative Economy” on Jan. 19. In the first hearing in history to draw attention to the arts and culture economic sector, advocates provided recommendations for bringing arts and culture to the center of long-term recovery. Among the witnesses that testified before the committee was Carson Elrod, co-founder of the Be An #ArtsHero initiative and Arts Workers United. The Be An #ArtsHero initiative was founded by Elrod as well as Brooke Ishibashi, Jenny Grace Makholm and Matthew-Lee Erlbach with the goal of campaigning Congress for relief for arts workers who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. From there, Arts Workers United was created to urge legislators to “make arts workers and the creative economy a legislative priority commensurate with their socioeconomic value” in a more official lobbying capacity, Elrod said.

Third Act’s NFT Collection Grows With Brian Stokes Mitchell And More

Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell and his talk show Crossovers Live! have joined with Third Act to launch a new line of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that are available now through December 20, 2021. With this release, Mitchell became the first Broadway actor to digitize his likeness in the form of an NFT. This collaboration was commissioned by production company Atomic Focus Entertainment, which partnered with Third Act’s in-house NFT studio to produce the collection. ​​The Third Act platform boasts an incredibly simple and easy-to-use crypto experience. The marketplace lists all of its available assets in USD and users can purchase NFTs directly with a credit card, meaning transactions can be made easily on one of the most eco-friendly platforms available today: Hedera Hashgraph. Using Hedera, Third Act’s carbon emissions are a fraction of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even Visa transactions. And a portion of each and every sale goes directly back to productions, personalities, and IP owners.
