COVID-19 Response

Update June 27, 2020

What we are doing

Although Centre 64 is still closed, last month has been pretty busy. Amongst many other things, we’ve been working on a plan to assure a safe return to partial operations; you may have noticed that we’ve been working on our online presence, mostly on Facebook for now; and we’ve also been organizing online events.

Our first online Da-VIN-Ci Paint Night with Lori Joe via Zoom was a success!

It’s safe to say we’ve been forced into taking things online, but it is actually a good thing. Who knows, we might keep supplementing our regular events with online events when we get out of the up-side-down and go back to some form of normal.

Please keep checking our website and/or finding us on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the know about what’s going on and coming up.

Thank you for your patience, compassion and support!

What we are doing

The show must go on
So, back to work it is

Today is the first day back at my job as administrative assistant since being laid off due to COVID-19. Although I wholeheartedly enjoyed my forced time off, it feels so good to be back!

We are currently working on a plan to assure a safe return to partial operations, but there is lots of other work to do as well for both our administrator and myself. We are focusing on staying in touch with our artistically inspired community and finding new ways to provide opportunities for Kimberley area citizens to participate in and enjoy creative arts and cultural activities.

Please keep checking our website: kimberleyarts.com and/or finding us here and on Instagram to stay in the know about what’s coming up.

We encourage you to also take a look at CultureOnline.ca, British Columbia’s online directory of province’s rich arts, culture, museum, and heritage sector.
“Whether you’re a parent looking for a way to spark home learning, an educator wanting access to new online resources, or someone who just loves arts, culture, and heritage, you’ll find a world of culture on CultureOnline.ca.”

Thank you for your patience, compassion and support!

Update April 2, 2020

What we are doing

Even though Centre 64 is closed and all upcoming events have been cancelled until May 30, 2020, Christine and Irma are still working behind the scenes. This is a good time for them to get those jobs done that they don’t have time for when it’s “business as usual” at Centre 64. Christine and Irma are working from home as much as they can. Christine will be in the office as needed on Wednesdays and Fridays. Irma will be in the office as needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Don’t hesitate to send Christine and Irma an email (info@kimberleyarts.com) with your questions or ideas!

Stay calm, cautious, and hopeful. Stay home if you are sick, and be kind to one another.

Centre 64 Closed

Centre 64 is closed until further notice

In light of the announcement of Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry that British Columbia has declared a state of emergency to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 cases and the guidance provided by public officials to safeguard the health and safety of our community, we have made the decision to close Centre 64, beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

Due to staffing limits during Centre 64’s closure, we will be unable to check voicemails regularly. Please contact us via email at info@kimberleyarts.com with any questions, concerns, or requests.

We are monitoring the evolving situation closely and will announce any further program or operational changes through our regular channels, including our website and social media.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we work together to help our community stay safe and healthy.

What You Can Do
For the safety of everyone in our community we ask that you:

Wash your hands. Do so often. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If opportunity for hand washing is not available, use hand sanitizers. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Hold a tissue over your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Throw that tissue away and, again, wash your hands. No handshakes or hugs, please. A wave is acceptable for greeting others.

We encourage you to stay informed and to follow the guidance provided by public health officials.

Above all: stay calm, cautious, and hopeful. Stay home if you are sick, and be kind to one another.
