And that’s it! Fast, efficient, good quality. See you there, art lovers.

What does being a Board Member involve?

 

Artist Run Initiatives are about people, about who is prepared to do what. We are not in a place where there’s a major arts institution pouring out energetic young artists to support an initiative like this. But we’ve had terrific public support in the past and we’re look forward to that continuing. Artist-run spaces do come and go, but I don’t think this one should [go], because it contributes so significantly to the cultural life of Alice Springs.

– Pam Lofts, artist and founding member
