In 2009/10 Collage Arts won a tender to deliver a range of projects in West London - Finella Devitt  was a member of  the team that developed the strategy which successfully won the tender.  Finella’s knowledge of the creative and community arts sector and her research skills made a significant contribution in the organisation winning the tender and establishing Collage Arts in West London. Finella has also contributed her expertise as a consultant to the board of Collage Arts and again her contribution has been invaluable in the growth of the organisation.
