Corona crisis management measures have brought wide-spread cancellations of public events. Particularly cultural events such as concerts and shows have been hit hard by these measures, causing a massive loss in income for artists and agencies.
Eu Fico Em Casa Festival (I stay at Home Festival) is an initiative to showcase cultural events online. On Instagram, performers, musicians and authors showcase their acts and give concerts, readings and other performances with a duration of 30 minutes each.
Through this initiative, everyone can enjoy cultural events at home and the possibility to still see the artists whose events had been canceled.
The Festival further increases awareness of the importance of staying at home as a crisis mitigation measure. While giving people the possibility of enjoying the music they have been deprived off, the Festival also draws attention to the importance of the cultural sector and the dire situation economic situation the entire sector is in due to the crisis.
