NSEAD members should note that we are in the process of re-convening the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Art, Craft and Design Education (APPG).

The first AGM will be on Wednesday 1 July 2015. This will be a swift meeting in order to elect officers. Once that is done, then an application will be submitted for the formation of the APPG. Sophie Leach will be there to represent NSEAD. Sharon Hodgson MP has agreed to stand as chair and Earl Clancarty has agreed to stand as vice chair. There may be a second vice chair.
