It gives me great pleasure to introduce the Annual Report 2016-17 and to reflect on the exceptional progress Arty-Folks has made this year with the generous support and donations of all our funders, volunteers and circle of friends. We have started this remarkable year by celebrating our 20th Anniversary and concluded it by celebrating the Civil Society at 10 Downing Street.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank our members who inspire us through their artwork, member volunteers who work hard alongside our staff team, and members of the Board of Trustees whose commitment to Arty-Folks has enabled us to grow. And finally, I would like to give a very special thanks to our staff team, whose drive, commitment, enthusiasm and expertise embodies what Arty-Folks stands for and achieves.
John Gough, Arty-Folks Chair
