How we make our policies

The Delegate's Convention is ultimately responsible for control of all the Association's activities and, amongst other matters, the democratically elected delegates pass necessary resolutions, amend the statutes and approve annual accounts and budgets.

The Delegates appoint from amongst themselves a Managing Board. With the exception of their legal consultant, all members of the Delegate's convention are disabled artists.

The Managing Board is comprised of a maximum of seven artists, plus the legal consultant. The President of the Managing Board is also the President of the Association and must be a mouth or foot painting artist who has won recognition as an artist and achieved success in international exhibitions. The Managing Board appoints non-disabled staff to run the publishing houses.
