TiM is committed to supporting artists, and in light of the devastating impact of Coronavirus on independent artists, we are diverting our attention and resources to finding new ways to deliver our work and support artists in financially surviving this period. While our physical spaces will be closing, we will be moving our June festival online and exploring multiple ways of presenting the commissioned work.
Anyone already contracted will be paid in full and we will be reaching out to all artists we have upcoming engagements with to work out how best to proceed together.
We will also be announcing plans for new opportunities to create socially connected work with digital tool packs in response to the realities of social distancing and self isolation. Not everything we attempt over the coming weeks will work but we will continue looking at new solutions and provocations.
Most of all be safe, and we will endeavour to be available throughout.
Rich, Jyothi, Ivan and Hélène
Additionally this is the latest guidance from the University:
Following the Government’s advice regarding large gatherings, the University has postponed all events that were planned to take place on campus until the end of May in the first instance.
We are monitoring official advice and information and will continue to make decisions in light of any new developments and announcements from Government. Our events will be rescheduled at a future date and we will email you with further details when we are able to.
We understand the level of anxiety that the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is causing. We want to assure our University community that the health, welfare and safety of our staff, students and everyone involved with the University of Bradford, is our number one priority.
We look forward to seeing you at our rescheduled events.
