Announcement – Coronavirus update

A Statement from Nexus Arts

Nexus Arts wishes to advise all our supporters that our Venue, Gallery and offices will now be closed until 30 April. We take our responsibility to the community extremely seriously, and we are committed to following the advice of health professionals and doing everything in our power to slow the spread of this virus and protect the vulnerable. We will continue to keep you updated as the situation changes.

Sadly, artists are some of our most vulnerable at this time, especially those working in our freelance sector – those that Nexus works tirelessly to support. They are facing severe financial risk, along side the huge numbers in our population who work in the gig economy. Nexus will honour all budgeted artist fees throughout this period, and we support actions taken by bodies including LPA and NAVA to lobby the federal government for increased levels of support.

Our friends at Vitalstatistix rightly note that “this crisis has made very clear just how precarious artists and arts workers are.” We stand with you all.
