Victoria’s art community is asking, “What’s up with Open Space?”
 
At 4pm on Sunday April 8, Open Space’s new Board of Directors invites you to join us and share your questions, concerns and hopes for Open Space during this difficult and vital time. There will be brief presentations from the Board and plenty of time for questions and discussion.
 
The day after the forum, we will be gathering for a healing ceremony and community feast. Please RSVP separately using this link to ensure your seat for the feast.
