After careful consideration, we have decided to close Wrong Brain Headquarters & suspend Wrong Brain public events through the end of March. The safety of our residents, members & community is in our hands, and we are taking the social distancing recommendations from the WHO & CDC very seriously. Wrong Brain cares about your Weird, and we want to be proactive in light of potential harm that could be caused to you and vulnerable members of our community. We hope to reopen for Dover Art Walk on Friday, April 3 for Maps Of Places I’ve Never Been, Vero Stewart’s first gallery show. We are flexible and will reassess the progress of the pandemic in 2 weeks. But for now, it is our responsibility to slow transmission; we believe social distancing, hand washing, and disinfecting surfaces is the best we can do collectively and individually. We encourage you to follow these CDC recommendations as well. We have to protect ourselves to protect those who may not be able to protect themselves. We have to work together when those in power have done little to protect us.
What that means for now:
Comedy Friday 3/20 will be live-streamed – please tune in at home & throw popcorn at the screen when someone tells a bad joke.
A Fancy New Discord Server – We’re going to go ahead and start our own Discord server which will act as a public chat room for those who want to engage and collaborate with people they might not know yet.
Gay Paper Mache Wednesdays 6-9pm will be an Instagram Live from your Studio Marathon – we encourage you to work on a project at home and join into our Livesteam from your studio, bedroom, kitchen, basement, or where ever!
Quarantine Challenge – we will post a new creative challenge each day to keep ya’all engaged and making – there will be a prompt, you’ll make a thing and send us a picture / video – and we will post it! Send in by midnight. Posts happen the next morning!
Gig & service workers – if you are having trouble getting paid during this period of All Cancellations, send us your Venmo and a picture and a blurb – we’ll post for you. Have art or music to sell? We’ll post those links too. Let’s help each other stay afloat. I know I don’t have sick leave or health insurance….
Stay safe, stay weird, & make some art.
