ArtSpring Newsletter April 27, 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope this newsletter finds you safe and well. We’ve received such positive feedback on the weekly newsletter that we’ve decided to continue with that format for the time being. We are so glad that in some small way we can continue to serve the community. Each week I connect with presenters across Canada and though there are many challenges we are all looking for ways to stay relevant and serve the communities in which we live.

With all best wishes,
Cicela Månsson
Executive & Artistic Director


The gift of time and space

Our stellar maintenance crew is making hay – from safe distances of course – while the lockdown remains in place. Erin and Nikki have been taking advantage of this pause in normal routines to give several sections of the building a refresh. The results are impressive. We can’t wait to have you back to see for yourselves.
