I hope this finds you, and all those close to you, safe and well. This is a grave time, and on behalf of everyone at The Polygon, I want to express my sincere appreciation for your ongoing support and to those who have reached out in solidarity as we weather this crisis with our cultural communities, both here in Vancouver, and elsewhere around the world. We are all truly in this together.
Like all cultural organisations, The Polygon closed to the public two weeks ago and our staff are working from home, managing the unspecific proportions of a crisis that has had an immediate and radical impact on our operations, as it has on everyone. We don’t know what the future holds, but we are determined to protect our ability to re-open as soon as safety precautions allow, and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the gallery to celebrate art and artists together in person.
Until then, we will be in communication with you via our digital channels to regularly bring you inspiring work. This includes weekly online programming on our Instagram account and website, arts activities to encourage youth to keep creating, and a podcast that will focus on artists and creators, giving prominence to the critical importance of their voices in a world of such uncertainty.
