EPG is moving...
our studio is packed up and in storage
while we work hard to re-open in a new space!
COVID19, as well as numerous other challenges within our old studio, have played a significant role in EPG making a very difficult and extremely emotional decision to vacate our studio home after 68 years of working in the basement of Victoria School.
In late summer 2020, we moved out of the Victoria School studio space, placing the entire contents of the studio in storage. With this major disruption, comes excitement for new opportunities and growth in creativity for us and for the Edmonton community. Victoria School and EPSB have been very good to us over the years and we are grateful for their contribution to our longevity.
We now have a new space that we are preparing to occupy and, hopefully, start up modified operations in the next few months (of course, based on COVID19 safety precautions and guidelines) and when it's safe again to operate at capacity, we are aiming to fulfill our long-held desire to offer more EPG program availability to the local community.
As far as we are concerned, it can't be soon enough, but a lot of work has to be done yet! So keep checking back and we will attempt to update our followers as events unfold.
In the meantime, be kind - these are extraordinary times. Please keep up to date with, and follow, public health guidelines for personal hygiene, wearing masks and social distancing, for your own safety, as well as others.
