WHY SUPPORT FUTURE PROOF?
To assist us in planning for the future as we strive to continue providing a creative printmaking space for artists!


In March 2024, Open Studio initiated the 'Save Open Studio' campaign, aimed at securing funds for a sustainable future. Our goal is to ensure the continuity of our unique printmaking space, serving both artists and the public. So far, we've raised enough funds to sustain operations until the end of June and now seek further backing to plan for a stable future. Taking part in the FUTURE PROOF 2024 auction is an excellent way to support us further as we plan for anticipated renovations and our refreshed reopening in 2025.
