07/12/12On Thursday (6th December) I was voted onto the Executive Committee of 'ArtsRichmond'. 'ArtsRichmond' is a voluntary organisation and registered charity that is partly financed by small grants from the borough council and the bigger local charitable trusts although at least half its income comes from affiliated societies. The aim of the organisation is primarily promotion of arts activity in the borough, partly through the activities of the 90 or so affiliated societies which includes the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society of which I am a member. The group also aims to encourage participation, in particular through competitions and exhibitions encouraging individual activity.
I was honoured to be asked and in-between my trips abroad and photography work I hope I can make a worthwhile contribution as the only photographer on the Committee.
