When will we be able to be together again?
It looks like the Late Summer-Fall of 2022!
We are watching and evaluating several factors. As you may have heard in the news, in recent months there has been a surge of COVID on our island now including newly arrived variants. Our numbers continue to be higher than the mainland, so it is critically important to continue to be safe, vigilant and respond accordingly.
- Over a year of COVID has slowed the timing of NISDA’s Historic Restoration CPC Projects yet to be completed. Contractor crews have been impacted by
COVID and scheduled work both at our school at Seaview Farm and Artist Residences have been slowed or halted.
- Another factor: Many have moved to Nantucket recently, adding to contractor projects and slowing Town permitting approvals.
- The reset of our Art Studios: set-up, equipment and supplies is therefore on hold until the contractors have completed their work yet to be re-scheduled.
- Planning fewer, even-distanced art programs outdoors is currently impossible and would be a huge concern, considering the sharing of materials etc.
