Community Day

11 AM to 11 PM

Discover our new building at Community Day, the culmination of our Grand Opening Week. We throw open our doors for twelve hours to mark this historic occasion. Get a first look at our inaugural exhibition, Architecture of Life, and drop in to see how amazing films look in our first purpose-built cinema. Expect DJs spinning, dancers dancing, weavers weaving, and other impromptu happenings throughout the building, organized by artist David Wilson.
