In 2013, Initial Gallery embarked on a two-year project to investigate the role of a gallery in the visual arts community. An exhibition calendar of philosophically based programs along with consultation with community members provided data used to describe the gallery identity.

In January 2016, the gallery moved into its new space with a new name. Modeled on the artist–run centers of Canada, Franc Gallery engages in an artist-mediated discourse around art practice and the aesthetic language evolved from created material and digital objects.
