New Life for 866 Main?

This past Wednesday, March 10th, a follow-up meeting to the "Community Arts Center Summit" was held at WindhamARTS. With input by individual studio artists and others, representatives from WindhamARTS, SWAC, and the Coop-Hub drew up a proposal to together rent the space that until recently was leased from WAIM by WindhamARTS alone.

  1. I am glad to read that Windham Arts will be keeping a space on Main Street. I am moving to the area and look forward to participating in your organization!

  2. Hope all is continuing to go well. Please let us know, Amy. Sending good wishes for the arts on Main Street, especially at 866!
