GFTU Art Purchase is just the start of 1% for Art
General Secretary of the GFTU, Doug Nicholls, is committed and serious in supporting 1% spends on art as a result of the new policy submitted by AUE at this year’s Bi-annual General Council Meeting of the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU).
AUE member Louise Bradley was selected from a number of submissions made after a call out to members earlier in the year. Executive committee members of the GFTU chose 12 hand silk screen printed works for Quorn Grange Hotel. Louise said “I have never had to organise so many sales so quickly”. Quorn Grange Hotel offer a great deal to AUE members with a 2018 winter deal. Owned by the GFTU Education Trust, the hotel acts as the location for much of the free training offered by the GFTU.
