We are sad to announce the news that Woodfordia is not proceeding with a Bushtime event at Easter and The Planting festival this year. The current status of covid-19 is still highly fluid and uncertain and the financial risk posed to Woodfordia from further event cancellations due to snap lockdowns is just too great. At this stage, we do not believe it is advisable for Woodfordia to take this risk.
In May we will review the status of covid-19 and its impacts on our community and reassess the climate for holding events such as Bushtime and indeed the Woodford Folk Festival.
We are deeply saddened not to be presenting what would have been our 26th festival of The Planting. This gathering has been the masthead for our environmental actions at Woodfordia and we remain dedicated to honouring our commitments to nurture this land and educate ourselves on a better way of doing things.
We are also saddened that in not doing these events, we have not been able to create work opportunities for artists and arts workers. We know many Woodfordians support artists in so many different ways and we encourage you to continue to do this.
We want to state our support for the Qld Government, and specifically Qld Health, and their decisions which have kept our communities safe. We understand the need for snap lockdowns and are responding appropriately in the current climate.
We will get back to you with more news as it happens.
