After extensive preparation, we’re delighted to announce that we are our face-to-face groups will be returning on the 5th October. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) we unfortunately suspended all of our groups, activities and events with immediate effect from March 2020. We took this decision in order to protect the participants, staff and freelancers we work with and to keep everyone as safe as possible.
We managed to keep in touch with our participants and sustain our long-established relationships with the local community through one-on-one phone calls and distributing bi-weekly creative wellbeing packs across East Leeds and beyond. We also heightened our digital presence with how-to videos, regular social media updates and our classes successfully continuing on Zoom, meaning our participants were able to connect and we were all able to maintain our relationships during a time of stringent social distancing.
However, social connectedness is at the heart of what we do. Following strict guidelines to keep us all as safe as possible, we are thoroughly looking forward to reconnecting with our participants in our community-led environment and welcoming faces old and new back to Space2!
Our social media is being consistently updated and news about what we are working on and current events within the organisation can be found here.
With warm wishes,
The Space2 team
