Though the provincial government has announced the removal of the Restrictions Exemption Program (or vaccine passport), the NaAC will need to take additional time to assess the impact of this decision on our community – including our staff, volunteers and artists.

Therefore, until further notice, all regulations related to accessing the NaAC studio space and other in-person programs remain in place, including:

  • Proof of vaccination requirements
  • Appropriate masking requirements
  • Social distancing
  • Ongoing testing for on-site staff
  • Thorough sanitation and cleaning practices.

The National accessArts Centre (NaAC) team has reviewed the Government of Alberta’s relaunch plans, and we are cautiously optimistic that we can begin a careful transition towards reopening our doors. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers – and our artists – will remain the highest priority. This being said, we know the incredible strain this lockdown has had on our community’s mental health and that remote programming has its limitations. With this in mind, we are prepared to share the following information regarding our own reopening plans:

The NaAC will reopen during the week of July 12, 2021, or when the Government of Alberta moves into Stage 2 of its Open for Summer relaunch plan – whichever comes later. For more information about our re-opening plans, click here.
