Another Update from CFAT:
Since our last COVID-19 update, we have taken the last few weeks to assess what is best for everyone and we have decided to close CFAT for the rest of April. During this time, we will not be processing any new equipment rentals and our facilities will be closed to the public.
We are working hard from home to find ways to keep providing space and resources for the media arts community in our programming and production services going forward.
We can't wait to safely see everyone in the ~f u t u r e~ 👽💜
Some COVID-19 Resources for Artists and Arts Workers:
Thanks to so many other wonderful arts workers and organizations that are sharing resources, we have compiled a list of resources we're aware of to help support artists and arts workers during these times. If you know of any more, please feel free to let us know and we'll keep growing this list on our website.
