Artburst co-ordinated the week magnificently and created a wonderful inclusive working atmosphere between all concerned, leading and encouraging the workshops which created the installation for the town hall. They fully understood the needs of our pupils and worked to ensure that all of the activities were appropriate to the needs and aptitudes of our students while maintaining challenging work for our mainstream partners. The final presentation in the Town Hall was very impressive and received high praise from all who visited the event. Most importantly for those of us working in the special needs areas, Artburst proved that they could make the process of art as important and as valuable as the product.
