The last six weeks have been a whirlwind. Nightlife leaders, nighttime commissions and “night mayors” have responded quickly to the COVID-19 crisis through network- and platform-building, advocacy, and sharing open-source ideas from one city to another. VibeLab offers a two-part conversation with nightlife leaders from cities worldwide:
- Part I will highlight models that have been developed in one city and adopted in another (including livestreaming, surveys, and network-building).
- Part II will dig deeper into strategies for advocating for nightlife with local government. We’ll highlight current successes as well as challenges.
All tools will be available open-source on nighttime.org, to make it easy to adapt these ideas to your own scene.
How have nightlife cities used network-building, surveys, livestreaming, and more to respond to crisis in the past 6 weeks—and how have cities learned from each other’s work? Successes, challenges, recommendations?
