I Lost My Gig Australia launches
Tally the losses. Connect with help. Rebuild stronger.
The cancellation of over 10,000 events has impacted the livelihoods of 84,318 Australians, and the figures are climbing by the minute. We're capturing the economic impact and hearing your stories to help put a face to this crisis, so we can connect those most at risk with help, and ultimately rebuild to a stronger industry.

Industry organisations will be convening this coming week to discuss strategies for supporting the most vulnerable - independents, freelancers, artists and micro-businesses as well as strategies for supporting significant employers across the creative industries.
We estimate this figure will continue to grow significantly each day over the coming weeks. Our thoughts go out to those who have been let go, or who are unwell or have family and friends struggling during this difficult time.
Reach out for help, and offer help to those around you. We're all in this together.
