ANNUAL REPORT TO THE COMMUNITY

At the Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, staff and members of the Board of Governors presented the 2017-2018 financial overview and a highlight of the past year’s activities to the community.

We were also thrilled to share the early ideas that will inform the new curatorial vision for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. For the past 4 months, we have been engaging community members and stakeholders from across the province to help us shape this vision. We look forward to updating our supporters in the coming months with new developments.
