Pop Culture Classroom Statement on Coronavirus – 03/13/20

Mar 13, 2020

Denver, CO — In light of recent announcements by the government and closures from local school districts, Pop Culture Classroom has made the difficult decision to cancel all on-site programming, including upcoming workshops and drop-in hours, from March 13 – April 1, 2020.

“We are following the guidance of qualified public health professionals and government officials in an effort to help slow down the spread of COVID-19,” said Adam Kullberg, Interim Executive Director for Pop Culture Classroom. “The health and safety of the communities we serve are paramount to us. No one wants to put kids or families at risk when we can take steps to prevent it.”

As a result, Pop Culture Classroom will be cancelling the following workshops:

  • Star Trek Nerd Out Night (3/13)
  • Repurposing Unusual Materials for Cosplay (3/21)
  • Creating Comics: Layout and Lettering (3/23)
  • Classic Video Game Night (3/27)
  • Girls Who Code Club (3/30). Start date tentatively postponed to 4/6.
  • Drop-In Hours (3/17, 3/19, 3/24, 3/26, 3/31)

Pop Culture Classroom will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly. On-site workshops will resume based on the guidance of public health officials, and we will share more information via social media and e-mail as soon as it is available.

    You should transitioning to online classes. Zoom or other video conferences programs give you the ability to do “live” or recorded demonstrations.
    Do a “live” class to those that have access to the technology, and make the video of the class available for anyone that was not able to make the class meeting.
