Part II

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, to make it easy to adapt these ideas to your own scene.

How do nightlife advocates fight for support for their scene with local government—especially when overcoming negative perceptions of night economies, or limited policy- or decision-making power?
