As we continue to face hardship due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, slowly we are figuring out how to cope and continue our arts programming. We have begun to open up and work with our artists since late spring, transforming our projects and work for virtual viewing and some live social distancing initiatives. Continue to follow us here and with our social media. Thank you for your ongoing support to Co.ERASGA during this hard time for the arts. We are thinking of all the artists and arts organization here at home and elsewhere. Stay safe and healthy.
