“How inspiring it is to see our local artists and artisans finding new ways to meet, share and practice what they love to do! It’s also reassuring that many of you have not forgotten about Centre 64 and are checking in, commenting on social media posts and sharing all of the events that are being adapted to our safe at home lifestyles. Centre 64 staff and volunteers are continuously looking for new opportunities and ways to provide our community with gallery exhibitions, live music and workshops, while following physical distancing and health safety requirements.”
