Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest Information

In line with the UK Government guidance, we are now taking steps to play our part in the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus. Wac Arts has always been safe haven for everyone, especially those who are vulnerable and at risk and our thoughts are with all of our community at this time. However, as of 09:00 Wednesday 18th March, we made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our on-site provision and services.

We have moved some of our programme activity online and will keep our young people and families updated via email. We as a team are working hard to see what we can do to support remotely and will regularly update our website to keep you informed.

This page will be used as a single point of information for all of our Wac Arts community. We will update this page with latest updates and information as and when it is available. Please follow the link below to latest UK Government guidance on Coronavirus:

Information for our Young People and Communities

We will be suspending on-site Junior and Senior Wac Arts until further notice. Our aim is to resume delivery as soon as possible. We will email our young people and families with further information as circumstances change. We will also keep our community updated on our Wac Arts Online activities via email. If you require further information then please email Lydia.Entwistle@WacArts.co.uk

Diploma

Virtual delivery of the Diploma is now complete and all showcases and public performances are cancelled. If you require further information then please email Lindsey.Pugh@WacArts.co.uk

Youth Inclusion

We are currently offering some services remotely (notably our buddying and transitions service and Wac Nites creative workshops). We are keeping in touch with families individually to review options on a case by case basis. We are now expanding our virtual provision to our wider community.
