Novel Coronavirus /
Update as of Monday 23 March 2020
In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, the Board of Tantrum Youth Arts has endorsed a suite of measures, with the wellbeing of our participants, families, artists, staff and community front of mind. These measures include:
- All remaining Term 1 afternoon Drama + Performance Workshops at Tantrum will be cancelled starting from Monday 23 March.
- Workshop participants/families will be offered credit for the remaining Term 1 workshops cancelled, which can be used on Tantrum workshops in the next 12 months.
- Our Workshop Facilitators will continue to be offered work during this period to develop innovative and exciting ways to offer Drama + Performance Workshops remotely in Term 2 and beyond.
- The Tantrum Office will be closed from Monday 23 March to Tuesday 14 April, with all staff supported to work remotely. If you have any inquiries during this period, please email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
Tantrum is committed to playing a role in minimising the transmission of the COVID-19 virus by limiting non-essential gatherings, travel, etc. At the same time, we stand behind our casual Workshop Facilitators, not to mention all artists and creative organisations that are affected by the impact of the coronavirus.
We are currently assessing all other aspects of our program and will provide updates on these in the coming weeks. Luckily, we are experts at thinking outside the box and we are confident that we will find unique and innovative ways to continue to deliver creative opportunities for young and emerging artists in the Hunter region.
Further updates will be available here and on our Facebook page as they become available.
