While the government of Ontario has given the go-ahead to media production companies to allow employees to return to offices starting May 19, Gamma Space has no plans to open during this Phase 1 period. We know some Toronto studios are allowing limited staff to return to their offices, because they require access to specialized equipment such as dev kits and mocap facilities. While we'd love to be in the same space with other humans again, we strongly believe that everyone who can work from home should continue to do so.
We do not have a timeline for reopening at this point. Our only concern is the health and wellbeing of our community members. As soon as we begin contemplating a reopening date, we'll let members know via email + Slack.
We understand that finances may be strained. As a nonprofit community space, Gamma relies 100% on member dues to cover our expenses. However, we don’t want any member to feel hardship during this time, and your contributions as a member have value beyond dues!
If you need to pause your membership, you can switch to the Free Community Member plan to stop your billing immediately while keeping your membership active. You’ll still have access to all of our community resources – it’s important that we remain together through this!
If circumstances allow you to continue contributing financially, your support is greatly appreciated. We want there to be a Gamma Space to come back to and your contributions will greatly help with that.
