A Space of Our Own


Planning continues for a possible CMAG “Space of Our Own” based on interest expressed by the majority of respondents to last year’s strategic plan session and subsequent site needs survey. The September 17th, 2019 monthly meeting at the MAC will present several options under discussion, all of which need more volunteer support from the CMAG community. To sign up to help, please email cmagspace@googlegroups.com.

We are also beginning to think about the equipment we’d need to get this project off the ground. If you have spares in your studio of any of the following items on our wish list, please let us know.
