With the publication of a roadmap back to business, the government has set down indications of how a phased return to business may take place. Since its publication, VAI has been working with a number of expert sources to prepare a guidelines for visual arts organisations, events, and groups who are looking to return to opening their doors while at the same time ensuring their compliance with COVID-19 restrictions. The resulting document is now being shared with a focus group for initial response and we hope to be able to have a wider forum for discussion in the coming days.
The purpose of the document is to provide as comprehensive a source as is currently possible that will assist groups and organisations with considerations that include: Health & Safety, Human Resources, and Legal, as well as being able to better quantify supports that will be required so as to deliver a safe environment for artists, employees, contractors, and audience. We will be advertising the wider event very soon in our VAI Events section and through the eBulletin and Social Media.
