    Seeing the Space

    PLAN FOR YOUR WALKTHROUGH

    We offer walkthroughs once a month for your convenience. Please invite your coordinator and other vital members of your group to this meeting.The Abbey will be open for you and your team to plan your event. There may be other groups also planning their event in the space. We will make sure an Abbey Core Staff Member is floating in the space and available to answer a few questions as you and your coordinator plan out your event. We usually budget 5-10 minutes to answer questions and review your paperwork to make sure we have your most up to date plans on file.
    For the next scheduled walkthrough, please visit our online calendar
