POSTPONED: VALT 2020 Winter Session Open House


Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and for the safety and health of our students, staff, and community, we are making alternative plans for any programs or events that bring together 10 or more people.

Unfortunately, this means that we are rescheduling the VALT Open House to a future date to be determined (we hope in mid-to-late-April). This was a sad decision for our team to make because we were so looking forward to celebrating the hard work of this really fantastic VALT class together next week. We are hoping to do so in the very near future.


Given that much of our work is centered around community and collaborative creative work, these are not easy decisions to make. However, the safety and health of our community is our priority. We are monitoring this ever-evolving situation closely and will keep everyone informed as we make these decisions. For the most up-to-date information about how to keep yourself and your families safe, please see the Minnesota Department of Health: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/index.html


Thank you for your understanding and please stay healthy.

– Team JXTA
