Special Terms, Conditions & Guidelines during COVID -19
Nordic Art Society is perfectly aware of the complicated situation we all go through due to this pandemic. First of all, we hope that all of you and your loved ones are well, and we trust that by the time we resume our activities in Fall 2021 the situation will be stabilized and we can develop our workshops with relative normality. Our intention is to make this situation as easy as possible within our possibilities. We have made the following decisions regarding this complicated situation:
100% refund in the event that a cancellation is due to COVID-19. The reasons considered in this case are: quarantines, lockdowns, border closures, infection of the participant or a close relative. All these reasons must be sufficiently proven in order to have access to a 100% refund. You will also have the option to use your payment as credit towards a future workshop. Please observe that we will be able to refund your workshop fee. Also, please do not forget to get a proper travel insurance that will cover your other expenses such as flights, hotels and so on in case we need to cancel the workshop.
