With the corona pandemic 2020, in March, the plug was pulled on an entire sector of the economy. The event industry is a colourful mix of artists, engineers, booth builders, stage designers, creatives, altruists, idealists and people in 150 more lines of work. Since the ban on events in March 2020, freelancers, smaller and bigger businesses as well as their employees and families fight for survival. A real lobby? There never was one! Because we never asked for or made a claim on political help. As #AlarmstufeRot we have made it our task to change this. We need a voice towards the government in order to address the manifold existential needs in the cultural and event sectors. Many really fight for economic survival. We want to provide fast and unbureaucratic help for those in the community affected worst.
