    Claire, any chance of a chat at White Moose gallery, Trinity St, Barnstaple. We are working with an artist on a major project and it would be great if you could give some feedback on applying for funding and co-ordinating the project. We are open 11am – 5pm Mon – Sat, so if you’re in the area, do pop in – kettle’s always on! Stella x
