To our Assemble creative community,
It has been an interesting couple of weeks, for sure. We are confident you are all focused on staying healthy and helping to keep others healthy also, in light of the recent events surrounding Covid-19.
Starting on Saturday, March 28th, the state of NH will be implementing a “stay at home” order with only essential businesses remaining open. Although art is, of course, essential to all of our wellbeing- for now, we must close our doors in the interest of public safety. All of our classes and programming have been suspended until further notice. If you have registered for a class, we will reschedule it with you during a time that will work for you in the future. We will also be closed at this time to our monthly maker members.
We will reevaluate plans as the medical and social climates change. You are so important to Assemble. Your passion and the community we share is priceless. We certainly are hoping that things will return to “normal” very soon. We miss all of you.
In the meantime, please share the projects you are working on from home! We would love to see them, use the #assemblemakers, or check-in to Assemble so we can see and support you from the appropriate physical distance.
Challenging circumstances like this virus outbreak can put a huge strain on small arts organizations, such as Assemble. If you are able to support our small creative community, by donating monthly $60 as a Patron, click here.
To our Maker Members, our monthly fee will automatically be sent out at the beginning of next month as usual. Please consider continuing your membership as you normally would. This is a challenging time, and your ongoing support allows us to be here for you when this crisis passes. We are just as nervous as you are, and will do our best to return to “normal” when things settle down.
Last but not least, we want to expand our gratitude to all those working on the front lines, caretaking family, and people who have shared their art with us to make our time more enjoyable.
If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual Hugs to you and your loved ones.
The Assemble Team
