Hello :-)

     I am not sure if this email will reach one recipient or the whole list.
It is of no matter - the message is the same. It is better to align
Community needs with Public Sector needs and find common ground than oppose
and attack.It takes creative thinking to do this however. The attached
presentation shows one way that Voluntary Arts Organisations aligned
themselves with the public sector.
