In the case of Support Act and Crew Care, both support entertainment industry workers in need.
Support Act is Australia’s only charity delivering crisis relief services to artists, artist managers, crew and music workers as a result of ill health, injury, a mental health problem, or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music.
CrewCare focuses on road crew and behind the music scene workers. They have established important programmes, represent, advocate and support crew who are the engine room our industry, both internally and externally. In 2020/21, Support Act was pleased to provide crisis relief to 525 crew through grants valued at over $1.57m. These included grants for people directly impacted by the pandemic, plus grants for funeral support and non-COVID related issues.
Funds raised for Breakthrough will assist its ongoing work in mental health research to help transform the lives of those affected by mental health issues. Breakthrough is Australia’s only dedicated mental health research foundation with its work focused on creating a life free from mental illness.
With the rising challenges of restrictions on the entire SA entertainment industry, this event is being created, and driven, by members of our industry to help South Australian’s specifically. Thousands of people, and businesses, in the sector are all struggling due to significant lost income, declining mental health, and in need of support. This event aims to raise much needed support funds, and awareness.
Event promoter Rob Pippan adds: ‘I give thanks to all the amazing artists who have agreed to appear in support of these three very worthy charities. After a recent SA Entertainment industry Summit held at the Arkaba, it was evident from promoters, artists, behind the scenes workers and venues that the combination of
lockdowns, complex covid plans for venues, plus upright consumption and dancing restrictions had significantly affected the entire music and hospitality industry. It had set thousands that work in it on a disastrous path of not being able to trade properly, and make sustainable livings. Tens of millions of dollars of earnings in the busiest trading quarter of the year have now been lost. The compounding stress of inability to work, and financial pressure, had set many onto a dangerous mental health pathway, that needs be supported and addressed. Entertainment is one of the first to support others in need. This event will directly assist those in need in our industry. It’s time to party again!’
Breakthrough Executive Director John Mannion said it was ‘exciting that so many people appreciate the significance of mental health and we thank the incredible artists taking part for their generosity in highlighting such an important issue.’
