As we all adjust to a new reality with respect to the COVID-19 virus, our thoughts are with the people who make up our extended creative community across the country and world.
Along with you, we are monitoring the situation closely and will heed the advice of experts in the coming weeks and months. Our collective health and wellbeing is of paramount importance and we will make programming decisions accordingly.
Watershed events planned for the next month have been postponed. This includes a workshop for K12 educators on March 20 and our beloved Soup Bowl Supper that was scheduled for April 2. We will keep you posted about new dates.
Out of an abundance of caution, our staff members are working remotely. We will be checking the office voicemail and our emails regularly and will respond to your messages as quickly as possible.
For now, we are hopeful that our residency season will proceed as scheduled. It will be deeply disappointing for all of us if the situation requires continued social distancing into the summer and fall months. Artists who are already registered for a session are receiving separate communications from us.
During this time of uncertainty we aim to be a resource that can offer connection and community to our extended network. Please stay in touch with us on Facebook and Instagram, or listen to our Conversations with Legends podcasts featuring ceramics greats Wayne Higby, Jack Troy, and Paula Winokur.
Watershed will continue to share updates as we learn more about the situation and its implications for summer programming. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
