Our February Hub Pilot
We want to hear from you about how TAP can support your creativity. From February 4 - 21, 2020 we are piloting a number of new initiatives and we hope you can join in and provide feedback about what works for you!
We will have the coffee on... Bring your work, your group, or your projects and use our gallery space as creative inspiration. We will have easels, desks and workstations you can use.
