COVID-19 Safety Statement from GIAF

3 August 2020

Galway International Arts Festival is committed to protecting your health. Our Autumn Edition programme of events will observe social distancing and we have significantly reduced the capacity at our venues to operate with limited attendances.

Updated safety information for GIAF 2021 (28 August-18 September) will be available in August, in line with the most up-to-date health and safety guidelines.

We ask that you carefully read GIAF signage at events, observe guidelines and follow staff instructions with regard to public health measures. We recommend that you wear a facemask to all indoor events in this programme and if you have any mobility issues, please contact us in advance so that we can plan for your attendance.

Your health and that of our artists, staff and volunteers are of paramount importance so if you are feeling unwell on the day of an event, we ask that you stay at home for your safety and that of others.
