A NOTICE TO THE COMMUNITY ABOUT COVID-19
Dear BBAX community,
This is a critical moment in the world. With the quickly evolving situation, Building Bridges Art Exchange is committed to doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and temporarily closing our gallery until further notice.
We believe that community-centered action is essential to our society. While we do not yet fully understand the many ways COVID-19 is affecting our world, we challenge ourselves to imagine a path forward rooted in communalism and collective wellbeing—locally, nationally, and globally.
As an organization dedicated to supporting international artists and exchanges, we recognize that these artists and organizations are particularly impacted by financial and healthcare vulnerability. We are committed to ensuring that BBAX artists and partners will continue to have international programs, even as scheduled engagements are temporarily canceled or postponed.
We are grateful to NPN and our peers whose expertise in emergency management are a guide for us in these uncertain times. Below we would like to share links to resources others have created. We will continue to gather and share resources as we discover them:
For Freelance Artists
On Racial and Social Justice:
