Aurora Foundation’s Board Embarks on a Productive Visit

24.11.23

From November 7th to November 14th, the esteemed board of the Aurora Foundation graced our organization with their presence. During their stay, they had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with our newly onboarded staff and paid visits to the talented artists and dedicated entrepreneurs we proudly support.

This visit proved to be incredibly fruitful, allowing our board members to witness firsthand the impact of our work and engage with the incredible individuals we collaborate with. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the board for dedicating their time to be with us.

As we bid them farewell, we eagerly anticipate the next visit, knowing that our continued partnership will pave the way for even greater strides in our mission. Together, we’re shaping a brighter future for artists, entrepreneurs, and communities alike.

 

Half of the board was able to visit us this time, the founders Ólafur Ólafsson and Ingibjörg Kristjánsdóttir and Stefán Ingi Stefánsson. Read about the board here.

All of the staff and the Board went to Mango Peak for dinner and talk.
