People Powered is a collective of freelancers from across the entertainment and live event industries who came together to help the NHS and other frontline services after their diaries emptied because of the coronavirus.
The organisation was started by two lighting designers, Katharine Williams and Jono Kenyon, who wrote an open letter to the NHS about how we could help relieve pressure on services and aid with flattening the curve. You can read it here.
Since then, our 1000+ members have been busy across the country using skills and ingenuity honed building festival infrastructure and producing live shows to provide structures and spaces quickly and effectively, and sourcing equipment from outside the NHS’s usual supply chain to provide solutions to challenges hospitals are currently experiencing.
