OPTICA, a non profit organization, is essentially community run, and depends on the participation of its members and that of the professional artists, critics and curators who compose its board of directors. In 2007, OPTICA also partnered with members of the business community, whose contribution will help improve the centre’s performance with respect to governance and fund raising. Besides managing finances and developing the policies and artistic orientation of the centre, the board also initiates collaborative projects with partner organizations.
