8/03/2020 Announcement COVID-19
To our dear artists, users, customers, visitors and friends
In the light of the uncertain circumstances related to COVID-19, we’ve come to the difficult decision to close Oriel CARN, Caernarfon from today, Wednesday the 18th of March, onwards for the foreseeable future, until we get further instructions.
Our main concern is the health and wellbeing of our staff and their families as well as the health and wellbeing of our artists/customers/visitors. Although our decision may seem a little premature in accordance to the government’s advice, we have vulnerable family members and so we cannot afford to take any risks. We hope you understand and respect our decision.
Despite these uncertain times, we will continue to have an online presence and hope to build on that presence. We wish to continue supporting our artists and creatives by using CARN’s online platform
And so, we will continue with some of our events, but on a digital platform. Events such as:
- Gwyl y Ferch’s Film Night Friday 20/03 at 7pm
- Drawing Club Monday Night 23/03 from 6:30pm
- and CARN’s General Meeting on Thursday 26/03 from 6:30pm.
These will still be available for all, just on a different format and from the comfort of your own home.
And if you would like to support local artists and makers by buying items from the exhibition or the shop, this will still be possible. And of course, posting for free under the circumstances. We will be making changes and updating our website, www.carn.cymru, to accommodate and support this need. We will also be posting updates on the situation and events on our website and on our social media platforms, so keep an eye out.
This will be a difficult period for all small businesses, and we’re counting on your support in keeping us going during these difficult times. We ask that you please support us and other local businesses where and when you can.
Thanks for your continued support
CARN and Oriel CARN Coordinator
