“I think you guys are doing a brilliant job.”
“I find your general range of services impressive, easy to access. They show a feeling of concern for the sectors health.”
“Staff are always helpful.like logo change.more statistics would be good online,research etc”
“Trust compliments. XXXXX (name removed to save other organisation’s blushes) suffered from this – by continuing to respond to negative feedback they repeatedly changed timetables for three years. Every time they changed they would get new complaints (from the people who were happy before) and nothing complimentary from the people who were now satisfied. As a result they just dissatisfied everyone! Eventually they realised what was happening. The moral? I like that story. And your news service. It’s brilliant.”
“I think they’re brill – very supportive for struggling artists!”
“you’re doing a very good job, now take a bow y’all!”
“I have found the changes recently made to be very constructive. the advice clinics as I mentioned are very helpful and I will attend more of these.”
Gold dust thank you.
This is a very good thing…

Free Art Friday response is great. I’m on news with Sean Hillen on Thursday and Arts Programe on RTE radio same night. I’m going to say a big thank you to VAI for getting the word out to their members.

Thank you so much for compiling the survey, it is helpful just to have the realities of artists life acknowledged particularly at this time when people feel the need to get a bargain. Thanks for all the hard work
Congratulations to Visual Artist Ireland on putting this report together. It is an area of research that I think is really important and necessary. Well done to you all!
Thank you for a wonderfully informative and helpful web-site

I am writing to you in relation to a residency which was advertised in the march VAN issue for the Cyland Media Arts Lab, St. Petersburg Russia. After seeing the advertisement I presented them with an application for a six week residency and got accepted. I am starting the residency on August 19th after obtaining a travel and training award from the Arts council of Ireland for fights and per diems.
I wish to thank you and to inform you of my success from your advertisement and work.
