Austin, TX   We at DuraSpace are looking forward to a productive year in partnership with our valued community while also looking back over a decade of community development and action, open source technology advances, and organizational growth.  We took a moment to dream big. Could we better integrate mindshare? What would thoughtful expansion look like?

“Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem
