INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY + DIGITAL ART
Posted : 16-March-20
It is with great sadness that we have, after much deliberating, had to make the difficult decision due to the COVID-19 outbreak to postpone West Coast Photo’s upcoming exhibitions and associated programme, which was due to launch this Friday 20th March and run for 6 weeks.
Public health and safety is our priority, and although according to current government guidance we are still able to continue to deliver some activities, we feel we are obliged to take seriously our responsibility for our audiences and guests. We also anticipate there would be much, much lower numbers of attendees as people avoid non-essential gatherings, so feel it makes more sense to try our very best to reschedule for a time when everyone who’d like to be able to attend can do so. We feel that other festivals and arts venues internationally have also decided that postponement is the best and safest action to take.
We are so disappointed and sad just now to have to postpone, but we believe we can still make it happen as well, if not better, when we reschedule!
We will now start working on the rescheduling plans and look forward to welcoming audiences to West Coast Photo in the future.
Thank you all so much for your support.
Best wishes, all the Signal Film & Media Team!
