Press Release

The Gaillard Center is participating in the nationwide #WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART event taking place on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020 from 9 pm to midnight. The Calhoun Street side of the venue will be lit in red to raise public awareness of and to implore the US Congress to pass the RESTART Act (S.3814) as quickly as possible, offering economic relief to the live events industry.

Additionally, the movement is to support ExtendPUA.org in their efforts toward continuation and extension of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program to provide relief to those without work due to COVID-19.

As theaters, concert tours, festivals, opera houses, trade shows, and other live events and film and television production remain closed, or open on a very limited basis, the entire industry is impacted, from designers, technicians, programmers, and stagehands to rental shops, manufacturers, and distributors of entertainment technology. This was the first industry to close last March, and could be the last sector to re-open due to the COVID-19 crisis.
