Risks and challenges

We are aware that this is an ambitious project. To take on an exhibition space of this size and commit to programming for years to come, while promising innovation and responsiveness to community, will undoubtedly take a lot of work and dedication.

However, with over a year of strategy, research, planning, thinking and doing... we're already well underway and we're completely committed and invested in this project. We have an incredible Board of Directors, individuals who are smart, enthusiastic and connected. We know we can make this happen on our end, now we just need your support.
