Bribie Community Arts Centre Closes

The Management Board of Bribie Island Community Arts Society has decided to close the Arts Centre from today until further notice. This is following advice given by the Federal Government to restrict all gatherings unless absolutely necessary, based on evidence that social distancing is one way to control the Corona Virus Pandemic. Given this decision, the following will occur:

. All Working Together Groups and Hirers using the facilities here will be cancelled. Those who have paid deposits for hire spaces can transfer this payment to another date when the Centre re opens. We hope this will be in June or July but we don’t know. It is an unprecedented event. . Cafe 191 will be closed. . All workshops in the months of March, April and May will be postponed and tutors advised. Those who have paid will have the option of new date announced when the Centre re opens. . All exhibitions and events will be cancelled until further notice. This includes the Matthew Flinders Art Prize. Those who booked and paid deposits for Matthew Flinders Gallery exhibitions in 2020, will be offered first available slots in 2021 or in the event of a cancellation later in 2020. . March, April and May Vibe markets will be cancelled . Artist of the Month will be cancelled. Those bookings already in place will take up in that order when the Centre re opens All art works presently on display in the Gift shop gallery can remain in place beyond the May 11 changeover – unless otherwise required. Please advise me if you wish to retrieve it/them on this date. We look forward to seeing you back at the Arts Centre when this tough time has passed. If you become present with cold and flu symptoms in the coming week, please contact me as well as those whom you were with at the Centre. In the meanwhile, take very good care of yourself. Kind regards, Julie Venue Manager BICAS Email julie@thomsonmedia.net.au
