Shopfront Arts Co-op is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our members and the wider community.
To ensure your safety, and following advice from the Federal Government regarding the closure of non-essential services, Shopfront Arts Co-op has changed how we will be delivering our workshops and performances. While this means we won’t be working with our Young People onsite at our beautiful new building in Carlton, it does mean that we will be streaming performances and workshops right into your homes.
Shopfront staff are working remotely, fine tuning our reimagined workshops and 2020 season to ensure that our Shopfront members and audiences have access to the arts during this time of uncertainty.
Positive mental wellbeing is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and while the changes that are taking place in society at the moment are vital to our physical health, Shopfront is committed to finding ways to support the mental health of our Young People during this difficult time.
For this reason, we will be delivering our online workshops and performances for free during this period of social distancing.
Shopfront Arts Co-op is so proud to be part of such a supportive community. We hope you take this opportunity to connect with us and with each other via our digital platforms.
As the home of youth arts, it is our privilege to now bring art into your homes. We’re all in this together.
As you will already know, like many industries, the Arts has been badly impacted by Covid-19. Shopfront is doing our best to stay afloat so that we can continue serving Young People, just as we have done for the past 43 years. If you’re in a position to provide a financial contribution to Shopfront at this time, your support will help us survive until this crisis has eased. As a not-for-profit charity, your donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible. We thank you for your support and are sending you virtual hugs.
