Risks and challenges
There is a great team involved and the artists have been engaged and involved in all aspects of production from the start. We will only be hanging paintings and photographs which we are all confident with and all of the partners and collaborators are already confirmed. I am confident that with the team involved we can deliver a fantastic show.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
