“It all started with The Arches Project for me.”
“The art world is quite a difficult one to really get into...there are often quite a lot of barriers be it financial or travel. The Arches Project offers a unique opportunity. It offers affordable exhibitions...it was really useful to me because at the start of my career I had a lot of ideas... I wasn’t sure of the likelihood of making a career in the arts a success...going there and seeing other people trying and meeting other successful artists....the main thing was how warm the atmosphere was it felt like a family... it gave me a lot of confidence in the art world, knowing that people were there to help, the support I received as a young artist has been phenomenal and that started with The Arches Project for me.’’ - Jacob Chandler
