Message from Artsline's President
Artsline reaches its 28th year and - as a founder way back in 1981 - I am delighted that the Charity is continuing to reach disabled people and their families, providing them with the information and activities they need to access and enjoy the arts, whether it is taking part, attending the theatre or visiting the cinema.
We launched our new, exciting and state of the art access database in April 2007, which currently has over 20,000 unique visitors every month; we have been funded by AIM (supported by the CEA) to produce an access guide to all cinemas in the United Kingdom and Eire; we are working closely in partnership with the other voluntary organisations on access issues in respect of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Attitude is Everything which we founded some years ago is now a great success and an organisation in its own right.
The Business Plan covering the next three years will continue the work and expertise of Artsline. There is a happy and optimistic attitude in our offices, and we look forward to many years of success and achievement.
Finally, may I thank my co-founders of Artsline, including Joan Bakewell, the late Peter Barkworth, Nicky Gavron and Ann Darnborough, the Trustees, staff and volunteers and the funders whose support has enabled Artsline to provide valued services to disabled people for a quarter of century.
President - Artsline
