Hereford College of Arts
We joined because the membership included an incredibly impressive line-up of individuals and organisations; we could already see how powerful a coalition it was becoming with huge potential for positive impact and wanted to support. For ourselves, we also wanted to connect with people and issues across the creative industries and not just within formal education. Coming from a smaller institution in a rural area I have been very impressed by how genuinely inclusive the Federation wants to be and considerate of different perspectives. Most valuably, I haven't come away from a meeting without a new idea or several, and some interesting new contacts.
