Annual Fundraiser

RE-juvenate. RE-claim. RE-imagine. RE-create. RE-cycle. RE-load. RE-visit.

There is no doubt that we are living in extraordinary times. Can our future be found by re-purposing materials, re-imagining the past and re-designing systems? RE- explores new and dynamic ways that we are looking to the past in anticipation of the dawn of a new era.
