Congrats on the Get Together. It was a super event and very well organised. Clearly there was a lot of work in the lead up for VAI staff and volunteers and everything appeared very well thought out and put together so well done to all the team. Great to see such a healthy and vibrant Irish visual arts scene! I enjoyed being there all day and felt it was important to the experience of being a contributor. Really enjoyed Mia’s talk as well and it looks like the AICA/VAI partnership is an obvious and good one. Brings the AICA agenda to a bigger artist audience which can only be good. I got good feedback on my talk, which I loved giving and thank you for having me.

best wishes
