To artists, audiences, patrons and community members of GSAC:
Much like yourselves, the Gas Station Arts Centre is keeping a close eye on the news around COVID-19 and the spread of the coronavirus.
As you know we are dedicated to creating a safe and enjoyable space for both audiences and artists. In this effort we will continue with our scheduled productions until directed otherwise by the health and government authorities.
In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus we are taking extra precautions to ensure bathrooms, doorknobs and other surfaces are cleaned and sanitized throughout the day and throughout events in our venue.
We also hope that our visitors follow the advice of the Public Health Agency of Canada - if you have any symptoms (cough, fever) or have traveled to one of the affected areas in the past two weeks or have had close contact with a traveler who has, please stay home. We also encourage our guests to stay up-to-date through Canada’s Public Health website.
What should you do if you have tickets to an upcoming event? Know the current recommendation within your community. Communities around the world are implementing measures to manage the pandemic; however, it is important to keep in mind that what is necessary in one region may not be appropriate in another.
If no restrictions on public gatherings exist where you live, and you are healthy - enjoy time celebrating in your community (and keep your hands clean). As usual, if you are unwell stay home (and make someone’s day by giving them your tickets). If you have a weakened immune system because of an underlying health condition and COVID 19 is circulating in your community it may be worth avoiding the crowds.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We acknowledge we are gathered on Treaty 1 Territory, the home and traditional lands of Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), and Dakota peoples, and in the National Homeland of the Red River Métis. We also acknowledge that Manitoba is located on the Treaty Territories and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk Nations.
We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.
We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.
Acknowledging this truth is important to the Gas Station Arts Centre, yet we acknowledge that it is only a small part of cultivating and protecting strong relationships with Indigenous communities. We continue to consult and work with all Indigenous people of Canada to learn, grow, and do better as a community gathering site, and as an incubator for the Arts.
