With the health of the community in mind, Chestertown RiverArts announces the cancellation of the face-to-face Reclaimed Runway event, and a shift to an alternative online event as part of the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus so that fewer people are sick at any one time, and everyone can be treated properly.
In order to share the fabulous outfits concocted by this year’s talented designers, and in the spirit of the boisterous fun that is the Reclaimed Runway, RiverArts presents OH NO NO CORONO… We’re Taking It Online!, an interactive, virtual Reclaimed Runway show, livestreamed from the RiverArts Main Gallery, hosted by The Mad Prophet of All Things Recyclable Greg Farley, with online People’s Choice voting, judging for the “Best In Show” prize, exciting auction items, and of course the opportunity to donate generously and support RiverArts vital community programs and activities.
“Social distancing” doesn’t have to mean “social isolation”
RiverArts has determined, “We won’t shut our community down—we’ll find out-of-the-box ways to come together safely.” Plans are in progress for a lively, engaging, and innovative event bringing people together to have fun and support RiverArts. More details will be forthcoming about:
- How to watch the livestreamed show
- Perks available by buying a “Virtual Table” for a watch party at your home with a small group of friends
- The big reveal of Online Auction Items and how to bid
- Details about RiverArts funding needs and what your contributions will support
