The work that Dean Stalham does is invaluable – he brings to animating the
artistic impulses of society’s dispossessed and downtrodden a rare
sympathy, and precisely because he’s been where they have no condecension.
he believes passionately in the role art in saving lives – hence the name
of his charity – and he makes good on this promise. His projects in the
visual art, in performance and in education give people who have lost
their way back their dignity, and enable them to move forward. He is
energetic, tireless and in my experience highly competent. I urge you to
seriosuly consider all he has to say, and to work to assist him. WILL SELF
I found Mark Prince to be not only inspirational but also innovative where he jointly worked with another speaker (unplanned) to deliver a very powerful and relevant message to the young people. JANET LEWIS, UBUNTU
