'We are now called The Arts Society, a name and brand that more clearly represents who we are and what we do. It communicates the broad nature of the lecture topics which now incorporate all the arts, and makes a strong statement about our role in the community and wider society. The monogram, with interlocking A and S, communicates a value at the heart of the organisation connecting people to the arts and to each other.'
