‘It’s a pleasure to support The Arts Development Company. They make art and culture practical by steering a project from the seed of an idea to a thoughtful and useful outcome. They have good judgement, skills, many artists contacts, and are sensitive to stakeholders. They leave a trail of goodness – things become more beautiful, more functional and more fun.’ The Fine Family Foundation
