Without all the support from our staff, board members, volunteers, stakeholders, and our partners, without their dedications, we would not be able to reach our goals. The previous centre manager Polly Green and her team have done so much to build up the centre and trust from the community. We will continue to do our best to provide services to the community.”
Pagoda Arts extends its sincere appreciation to everyone who has played a part in their success and looks forward to continuing its commitment to excellence in serving the community.
