COVID 19 UPDATE FROM TURTLE KEY ARTS

 

Turtle Key Arts - like all of our colleagues and partners in the arts -have been working hard to make sure that we have an industry to continue working in and a future for our sector. On the 5th July the Government announced a £1.57 billion rescue package to help the arts, culture and heritage institutions. We are yet to see how this will be distributed or what it means for the independent sector, the smaller arts organisations and the many freelance artists.

We do however continue to nurture hope, hope for a bold, brave and new future.

Turtle Key Arts promise to keep lobbying and listening. We promise to remain dedicated to our collaborating artists, partners and to our participants. We promise to continue to roll out as many of our core outreach and participation activities as possible. We promise to continue  sharing the work of our collaborating companies over the coming months. We also promise to come up with new innovative ways to reach all of you. We promise that we are still here and we care for the future of the arts. We believe that using the arts to reach people, change lives and allow creativity and freedom of expression seems even more important now.

Here are some thoughts from some of the participants and artists involved in the projects we have run over these last few months.

Just to say thanks a bunch for fun and music, Friday Mornings are really helpful in breaking up 
the daily grind! - A Participant

Shared experiences are very hard to come by in our new locked down world. Learning and performing music together provides a great structure and opportunity for creativity, companionship and having fun together. A particpant

Thanks to you and all your colleagues for keeping such an inspiring part of our lives going during lock down. - Husband of a participant

Seeing Ingrid and our friends. Feeling part of a group so we were no longer lonely during Lockdown- Young Amici participant

Would just like to say, as a direct beneficiary, a big thank you for all of the work that you have put into enabling TKA projects to keep running so well...It's been a massive boon for me to be able to continue working over this lockdown, and it would have been a very different experience had I not had the Turtle Opera project as part of my week. So thank you : ) A freelance artist

Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to a time when we can get back to connecting in person with our audiences and our communities and to celebrating 30+ years of our work with you all.

Thank you!

Ali, Charlotte and all the Turtle Key Arts team.
