So now we know – a packed audience at The Royal Overseas League in London heard a presentation by June Robinson and Florian Schweizer on the new name and image for NADFAS. Also involved were the Consultant Team and as a lecturer rep – Leslie Primo.
From henceforth and officially at the AGM in Birmingham we are: The Arts Society. Here are some examples of how the new logo will be used.
