Opportunities to contribute

A transcription of audio recordings edited for the observations, information, ideas, interests, and questions from the contributors to this information session would contribute to our community’s interest in the future of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Moderators for conversations around the interests, questions, and possibilities would contribute to our ability to become more informed and to exploring the information, ideas, and opportunities our communities of interests can contribute to the common interests of our community.
