A Message Regarding the Arts & Cultural Events Season
As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on live events. From Broadway to Charleston, venues are dark, and event producers everywhere are re-thinking how we can once again gather together for a show.
Given the unique set of challenges and budgetary constraints this pandemic has created, the Town of Kiawah Island has decided to delay the start of the upcoming Arts & Cultural Events season until early 2021.
We are saddened that we will be unable to provide residents with fall programming but feel this is the most responsible course of action given the demographics of our citizens and the priorities of the Town as a whole.
Arts Council events are sustained through the efforts of a dedicated group of resident volunteers. In order to create a safe environment, we will be working diligently to develop procedures that, among other things, may:
- limit capacity
- minimize contact
- increase spacing
- modify ingress and egress
It will be our goal to implement these measures seamlessly while presenting our programming at the highest quality possible.
If medical experts and government-provided guidelines still advise against resuming events like ours in 2021, we will announce further changes to the season.
We thank you for your patronage and look forward to welcoming you back to performances. Look for more information coming later this year.
