Corona Virus Statement

— UPDATE 14.3.2020 —

Hey all,

As everyone knows by now, the Dutch government decided to give the advice to cancel all events with more than 100 people attending as a precaution for the spreading Corona virus. There was confusion about the situation among our collective of volunteers that run the cultural centre about how to deal with this in the past 48 hours. Thank you to our supporters for giving us input.

We have decided that we will completely close down and suspend all public activities at the Vondelbunker until further notice. It is the only responsible thing to do for our community at large.

In a post about one of our most recent events, a tongue-in-cheek joke was made about kissing strangers rather than shaking hands. We regret this joke and we apologise.

During this crisis we wanted to keep functioning as a meeting point for our community.

If you know vulnerable people in your street, neighbourhood or social circle please check on them. Let’s make sure they’re taken care of and don’t feel helpless or alone.

We as a collective are here to help out those that need groceries done or have a hard time dealing with solitude; simply give us a DM!

Spatial distancing shouldn’t mean social distancing!

Love,
Vondelbunker collective
