Our response to COVID19

As a supporter of the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre, I am writing to update you on our actions in response to the COVID-19 virus. The health and wellbeing of our staff, artists, visitors and community is of paramount importance.

We are closely following NT and Federal Government guidelines including increased cleaning regimes, observing self-isolation recommendations, and currently restricting events to a maximum of 50 people.

We are in daily contact with the Government and will respond to any new directives as they occur.

GYRACC remains open and our exhibitions including Twine and Twine Again (Weaving Our Way) and Dreamtime Stories & Animals Creating Land are operating as normal.

We ask that when attending The Centre to avoid physical contact such as handshaking and embracing, and to practice good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene. Handwashing facilities are available in all bathrooms. Our staff are maintaining their high hygiene standards.

If anyone is sick, or have returned from an international trip in the last 14 days, we ask that you please stay at home.

If advice changes and we need to alter our operations, we will notify our supporters, audiences, and visitors via email where possible and through our website and social media.

Should you have any concerns please contact me on 8972 3751.

In health,

Gwen Gaff
