We talk to Melbourne live venue owners about how they’ve managed to keep the lights on while the stage doors remained closed, ask how ongoing density limits will impact their ability to re-open, and consider where government support has been life-saving - and where it's been absent.

Show Notes

The  Covid-19 pandemic has seen lockdowns and disruptions across Australia, particularly in Melbourne and Sydney, with Melbourne becoming the city in the world that has endured the most days in lockdown. These lockdowns have come in blocks, some longer than others, with periods of reprieve in between, but never long enough for our industries and communities to fully find their footing before the next set of restrictions has been imposed.

In this series, hosted by Amanda Reedy, we speak to the small business owners, sole traders, community leaders, and experts across a range of industries that have been impacted by the pandemic, to understand the specific challenges they have faced, celebrate the ways they have persevered, and explore the questions and concerns about the challenges that lie ahead.

In our first episode, we speak to live venue owners in Melbourne about how they’ve managed to keep the lights on while the stage doors remained closed, ask how ongoing density limits will impact their ability to re-open and consider where government support has been life-saving - and where it's been absent.

Our guests include Joel Morrison from The Old Bar Fitzroy, Kyran Wheatley from Comedy Republic, Adam Portelli from MEAA Victoria, and Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp. 


What is Resolve - Stories from a Stop Start Nation?

Who and what we are today is a reflection of our resolve in the past. When faced with challenges that seem like the end of the road, both individuals and organisations have to dig deep to find a new source of purposefulness and determination in order to survive.

The Resolve Podcast focuses on people, leaders, and organisations in Australia whose grit and ingenuity have helped them navigate pressures and challenges that would send many of us packing.

Our first series, Stop / Start Nation, looks at the ways that leaders, small businesses and sole traders from a range of industries have navigated the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
