It’s also our path to a future filled with safe and accessible environments for participating in contemporary art and programming; a future where artists can return to their creative spaces.
That’s why Gertrude is pleased to share that all our staff are now fully vaccinated, as part of the community’s collective effort to reach the 80 per cent vaccination target. We are busy planning for the safe resumption of onsite operations, and could not be more excited about the prospect of welcoming our artists and the community back through our doors.
Gertrude staff have made the decision to share their vaccination status with our community to demonstrate our commitment to keeping everyone in the Gertrude family safe as we navigate what we hope is the start of a long, vibrant season of contemporary arts programming.
We also acknowledge that the experience of each COVID-19 measure is unique for every person, and we are impacted by the pandemic differently. Gertrude is first and foremost committed to supporting the health and safety of our communities, and this safety includes supporting access, shared understanding, and individual health needs.
More details on planning your COVID Safe visit to Gertrude will be available soon, in line with Victorian Government restrictions to reduce the impacts of COVID-19 in our community. In the meantime, if you can, please follow the call of the National Association for the Visual Arts and #SitForAnArtist.
