London 11 August 2021 – STUFISH Entertainment Architects have today been unveiled as the stage designers for the international advocacy organisation Global Citizen’s Global Citizen Live – a 24 hour live broadcast with events and performances filmed across six continents to unite the world to defend the planet and defeat poverty.
Taking place on Saturday 25th September 2021, and airing air on ABC, BBC, Fx, iHeartRadio, YouTube, Twitter, and more, Global Citizen Live will feature the world’s biggest artists taking the stage to help rally citizens in demanding that governments, major corporations, and philanthropists work together by focusing on the most urgent, interrelated threats hitting those in poverty the hardest – climate change, vaccine equity, and famine. Famed for their pop/rock spectaculars such as Beyonce + Jay-Z’s ‘OTR II’ tour and The Rolling Stones ‘No Filter’ tour, STUFISH have been named as the stage designers for the Global Citizen events in New York City, Paris and Lagos.
