The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have tried ways of staying connected. CreateAbility and Creative Links have run Zoom video meetings but it’s still not the same as seeing each other face to face.
Recently we have begun seeing how we can safely run smaller groups again.
For activities like Drama that means changing the way we do things to give safe distancing as well as other precautions, such as temperature checks. Our partner organisation, Bendigo Venues and Events, that runs the theatre venues we use has not yet opened to the public but has given us access to The Old Fire Station. They have put in additional measures like cleaning before and after all sessions. We have been very appreciative of this and their staff have been glad to see at least some activity back in their theatre.
We don’t know how things may change again but it has been so good to be back!
