VANL-CARFAC COVID-19 Update on Excellence in Visual Arts Awards

In response to growing concern over COVID-19, and in solidarity with our global community, the VANL board of directors has decided to forgo the EVA awards this year.
While we are disappointed that we are not able to present the annual awards ceremony this May as planned, VANL is confident that this was the responsible decision.

Instead, we will be working on ways to highlight and honour excellence in visual arts through distance. As the situation develops, we will continue to keep collaborative conversations going between VANL and the community to ensure we are doing everything we can to support artists of Newfoundland and Labrador during these uncertain times.

Our focus remains on the health and safety of our community. While technology will help us stay connected with one another, we are asking everyone to stay at home whenever possible. Although we are apart in physical space, we are all in this together.
