Response to COVID-19

Home / Membership / Response to COVID-19

March 17, 2020

For immediate release:

As many of us are now working remotely from home, it is important to maintain communication with our networks. While our platform is not intended as a replacement for all-important face-to-face interactions at conferences, we hope to provide additional support to the cultural sector until this current pandemic and its ripple effect through the economy has begun to wane. 

Therefore, Culture Trove’s membership fees for all non-profit organizations have been waived, and a 75% discount given to commercial members as of today (March 17th) until the end of November 2020. We wish to make it easy for exhibit providers to freely market their offerings, so that they may continue to plan, promote and thrive. Those with existing paid memberships will receive an 8-month extension at no charge. To those looking for exhibits for hire, I encourage you to reach out to providers to indicate your interest and share how your institution may be adapting its exhibition planning in the wake of COVID-19. 

In the meantime, take good care of yourselves. I hope all of you gain some time to connect with loved ones, check in with neighbours, and indulge in a project or hobby that’s been on the back burner. Hopefully, there are some silver linings to be found as we collectively hit the pause button for the next few weeks.

Look forward to seeing you in the gallery again soon.

Best wishes,
Michelle Watson

Culture Trove Managing Director
