    Updates on Classes and ongoing events listed here. 

     

    Update 6/1/2020, 5:00pm: 

    Abbey Arts venues are adhering to all Public Health guidelines.
    See Classes Calendar for updates when small classes may reopen.

    For those entering Fremont Abbey and involved in providing Essential Services, all parties must agree to: 

    • SELF SCREENING: Each individual has already screened themselves for COVID-19 symptoms (fever, coughing, or shortness of breath)
    • Disinfect entry keypad with clorox wipes provided. 
    • Wash your hands properly after entry
    • Disinfect any areas/surfaces that you will be using  (before and after use)
    • 1 person max in any small room. 
    • All social distancing measures are followed when using the Great Hall or Gallery
    • Masks worn by livestream crew & artists while moving in the space and during load in/out 

    Abbey Arts will not be hosting public gatherings in our buildings until Public Health guidelines say it is safe to do so. Because streaming services are considered an essential service as described in Governor Inslee’s Safe Start, we are pleased to allow certain space usage for rehearsals and programs to create live and/or pre-recorded material for streaming, with all standard distancing and Public Health guidelines practiced at all times.

    We believe music, art and connection are as necessary as ever in this moment. This is why, in compliance with State and CDC guidelines, artists can perform their work safely in our space to connect with their fans in a time when we can really use the mental and emotional health benefits that art and music provide.

    In addition to providing a much-needed service to the community, we are also creating financial opportunity for artists whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by the ongoing public health situation.  

     

     Live Music at a Distance.

     

    Update 4/1/2020, 5:00pm: 

    All Abbey Arts venues will remain closed to public gatherings through the month of April. We will be updating all reschedules of concerts, events, and classes in the coming days. We hope to be back bringing you connected arts experiences at our venues soon, but in the meantime: make art, exercise, meditate, get outside (with distance of course), remain calm and please take all the recommended precautions this month.  

    Stay tuned for Abbey Arts online experiences as early as next week!

    Please also consider supporting local artists and nonprofits in this time of need, as you are able. We ask that our ticket buyers consider their tickets still valid for future reschedules and not to request refunds at this time if possible.  Lots of artists will be livestreaming shows soon, and we hope to share more of those on our Instagram and Facebook pages in the coming days. 

    If you would like to further support the future of Abbey Arts and our work to keep music/community accessible to all, you can donate here

    We are incredibly grateful for our community, staff and volunteers. Thank you and stay safe!  

    Sincerely,

    Team Abbey – Juliann, Nathan, Ashley, Brent, Sara, Dave, Taryn, Jacqui & everyone…

    Updated 3/11/20,  1:40pm Pacific Time:

    Gov Inslee’s statement:

    https://publichealthinsider.com/2020/03/11/new-limits-on-large-gatherings-other-emergency-strategies-to-slow-the-spread-of-covid-19/

    As supporters of creativity, local & touring artists, and individual freedom we are encouraging everyone to make choices for their own health & safety.  We are encouraging our guests, artists, volunteers, and staff to follow the KING county & CDC’s recommended precautionary measures and highly encourage those who are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who may be at any increased risk to stay home. If you work with or may interact with someone at risk, it’s advised to avoid large group activities as well.

    We thank you for continuing to support the local artists and small businesses by holding on to your tickets for the rescheduled date.

    Additionally, our staff is regularly disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, handles, etc.

    Under the Health Officer’s order in King County:

    • Events with more than 250 attendees are prohibited.
    • Public events with fewer than 250 attendees are prohibited, unless event organizers can take steps to minimize risk. Event organizers must ensure that:
      • Older and vulnerable individuals have been encouraged not to attend
      • Recommendations for social distancing and limiting close contact are met
      • Employees or volunteers leading an event are screened for symptoms each day
      • Proper hand washing, sanitation, and cleaning is readily available
      • Environmental cleaning guidelines are followed (e.g., clean and disinfect high touch surfaces daily or more frequently)

     

    We are closely monitoring the current situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to the health and safety of everyone at our events, and are following updates from King County Health, Center for Disease Control, and the City of Seattle regularly.

     

    If we receive instruction to cancel other events or artists are unable to perform, we will communicate those updates via Ticketing Emails and our Events Page as quickly as possible (please check your spam filters for Eventbrite or Abbey emails) and on our website and Facebook.

     

    Thank you for continuing to support artists & community in these difficult times.

    Please keep calm, wash your hands, and support those in need…

    ~Abbey Arts, Seattle
