During the celebration, alumni and supporters had an opportunity to contribute photos to a timeline clothesline marking each of the ten years of QVS’s history.

Part of the weekend together was devoted to alumni-directed workshops and a visioning session in which participants were invited to imagine a world transformed with the help of QVS fellows.
