LIGHT THE BLUE ROOM THEATRE
Result: $23,510 of $17,000 Goal
Sustainability once again took centre stage for The Blue Room Theatre’s 2017 end of financial year giving campaign as we raised funds to invest in brand new LED lights for our theatre spaces.
The response to the campaign was overwhelming, with the final amount raised being $23,510, surpassing our target by $6,510! This will allow us to continue to reduce our environmental impact, increase the sustainability of The Blue Room Theatre, and improve the opportunities on offer for artists.
Lighting design underpins our experience of live theatre. It is vital for our designers and technicians to practise at the forefront of current technologies so they can develop skills, make great work, and build careers in the industry. An upgrade to LEDs from conventional lights will mean we will be providing facilities on a par with the industry and opening doors to sustainable careers.
The Blue Room Theatre is committed to decreasing our environmental impact and carbon output, with the goal of becoming Western Australia’s first carbon neutral theatre by 2020. Following our successful installation of solar panels in 2016, beginning to install LED lights is the next most effective way to reduce the environmental impact of our core business: making and presenting theatre. The LEDs will use less electricity than the current conventional lights, and they will generate less heat, meaning less air conditioning.
The Blue Room Theatre champions the now, the next and the new and has been the creative hub of Western Australia’s independent theatre scene for 28 years, supporting the boldest minds and acting as a vital incubator for successful artists.
