Over 70 people attended what was a lively and stimulating evening.

Members of the North Leitrim community were invited to attend the centre and air their views on how they see its future. With a new Director in place, Brendan Murray, and a new board, the centre is creating a new strategy for the coming years.
This strategy will reflect the changing emphasis of Arts Council policy. Primarily it will see The Glens acting more as a resource for artists and children, in particular.

There will be further public consultations as the new vision is honed over the coming months.
