This budget provides an overview on what we'll need to rescue and reclaim Nelli's masterwork: The Last Supper.

As you'll soon discover, at AWA restoring Nelli's Last Supper must be coupled with a far-reaching quest to make her work a household name! The end-result is a 360-degree project including education, cultural outreach, trend-setting inaugural events and making Nelli 'television-ready'.

Here's a budget estimate spotlighting this project's many goals.
