Aon would like to thank Glasgow School of Art, Leeds Arts University and Manchester School of Art for their enthusiasm, support and contribution to this programme. Also, thank you to the members of the Aon Art Committee for volunteering and dedicating their time, Clyde & Co for their partnership and to our art consultants, Little Van Gogh for their fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

The Aon Community Art Award programme has been generously supported by the painting holiday business, Artist in Italy, for the past three years. Two artists are chosen and receive a 10-day residency at the beautiful farmhouse and studios in Tuscany, Italy. Special thanks to Julian and Amanda for their generous support over the past three years. www.artistinitaly.com
