NEW! Studio Central Present Google Meet Groups!

 

 

Community Art Talks

Join us for a weekly online presentation on a variety of art-themed topics, including visual art and artists, film, music, video games, and more! The presentation will be followed by a discussion on the topic. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re an SC regular, Artbeat alumni, or brand new to us!

These talks will be held on Google Meet which does NOT require you to download any software. You can join in an internet browser with a link, or phone in for audio-only. If you wish to use a mobile device you will need a Google Account and to be signed into gmail (this is free and quick to set up). If you would like to join, email studiocentral@artbeatstudio.ca for a link and instructions!
This session will be recorded and posted on YouTube for others to enjoy later.
 
Accessibility information: Google Meet offers live closed-captions, and the YouTube recording will be captioned as well. Meet is also compatible with screen readers via the Google Chrome browser; we can direct you to more information about this if you would like!
 

 

 

Online Hangout!

 
We miss our late afternoons at Studio Central when folks would chat and work on whatever they please, so we are bringing our cafe space to the internet! Join us on Tuesdays at 3:00 for casual conversation and company. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re an SC regular, Artbeat alumni, or brand new to us!

Update from November 16, 2020

Studio Central will PAUSE all ONSITE programming during Code Red in Winnipeg!

 
An update: based on Manitoba’s Provincial Response Level of Red (critical) Studio Central will remain closed for now. We expect this will last for the next four weeks but will let you know if that changes! In the meantime, we are excited to have some new and old ways for you to keep connecting with us and expanding your creative practice online – swipe to the next slide to see them all! Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you in the virtual world for now, and the real world soon.
 
Stay in touch, and stay safe. 💜

Update from July 6, 2020

Studio Central soft Reopening Tuesday, July 7th!

For information regarding general safety measures, art supplies protocol, and our mask statement – view our  “Phase 2: Reopening Safety Measures” document here!
 
Our hours will be reduced to Tuesday-Friday 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm allowing for the most effective and proper sanitization of our space. Our reopening will focus on the programming of art workshops, creative writing workshops, and open studio. At this time, our Cafe Central will be closed. Be on the lookout for updated bulletins and schedules for outdoor workshop days as well as weekly musical performances. Our daily Facebook live-streamed videos (you can watch them here) will continue as they will be broadcasted on-site at the Studio!
 
We kindly request, if you are able, to wear a mask in our space to protect the spread of germs to those around you. We have a supply of disposable ones at the front desk if you don’t have your own! Additionally, please give those around you 6.5ft/2m of social distancing space – we’ve changed our layout of tables and chairs to help with this. We have a maximum of 12 participants in our space at a time to allow everyone a comfortable space. If you plan to come to a workshop, it’s a great idea to call ahead and see how busy the studio is, (and if possible register) otherwise you may need to wait outside until space opens up. At this time, we are not able to host groups larger than 3 individuals.
 
 
Here is a glimpse at one of the posters you will see in our spaces to help remind each other of the studio’s safety measures.

Summer is here and we can’t wait to be reconnected!

As we prepare in the upcoming weeks to reopen Studio Central and our social enterprise Upbeat Artworks, we want to be sure we do so with the safety of our community in mind. Navigating this new normal during COVID-19 will include making necessary and temporary adjustments to our programming in order to adhere to safety recommendations from our local health officials.

We want to take this step together as a community and want to hear feedback from you!

Our Response to COVID-19

 
As we continue to monitor the situation in Manitoba, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all physical programming for the time being in order to do our part in keeping the community as safe and healthy as possible.
 
We know that it is a difficult time for those struggling with mental health and many individuals in our community may already experience isolation. For this reason, we will be engaging folks in art and community online through live art demonstrations!
 
From all of us at Artbeat Studio, stay safe and well.
