Message from our new Chairman –

Dear Members,

I would like to thank Peter for his highly successful term as Chairman under whose excellent care, with his inclusive style, friendly manner and careful direction, the Society has gone from strength to strength.

We are very lucky to have such a dynamic and involved President and supportive Committee and Deputy Chair working on our behalf to promote the Society and increasingly we are being approached by Oxford organisations who would like to work with us.

There are many artistic initiatives in Oxford, Artweeks, OVADA and the Festival of The Arts are just a few, and I believe that the Society should be at the heart of things and that this can be achieved through collaboration. We have a huge amount to offer with so much talent amongst our members and a great deal to contribute to the community.

Thank you for your vote of confidence, I am honoured to have been entrusted with the role of Chairman. I look forward to working with you to continue to raise the profile of the Society as a powerful artistic force in Oxford,
