We are a charity please support out work

MPA’s approach has been an exemplar. If you are going to do something as potentially controversial as a public art programme, then the MPA approach is the way to do it.” Ian Whittaker Policy and Partnerships Manager (Lancashire), Northwest Regional Development Agency (2008)
