ARC celebrates tenth anniversary with stories


Tenth Anniversary Celebrations in the Lambeth Palace Crypt. Copyright Richard Prime.

In our tenth year ARC invited some of our friends, partners, staff and supporters to meet at Lambeth Palace in London for a celebration of a decade of working, talking and creating.

Some of ARC’s key partners were invited to tell stories from the past ten years, not only recording the facts about the projects with which they had engaged, but also reviewing the reasons why this work and these collaborations had happened in the first place.

ARC is increasingly recognising that one of its major roles is to create unlikely partnerships. The following stories, recounted as short presentations in the medieval crypt of Lambeth Palace, illustrate why this role is so important, and why we hope that it will become an even greater element of ARC’s work as we move into our second decade.

Many thanks to Archbishop Rowan Williams and Jane Williams for hosting our celebration at their home.

A welcome from the Archbishop of Canterbury.
