BADept is very much a fixture on the artistic map with exhibitions contributing enormously to the development and strengthening of arts infrastructure in and around Blackpool.  Providing not only a programme of focussed exhibitions but also a variety of opportunities for local artists and students to develop their careers BADept is establishing itself as an important part of the developing arts sector within Blackpool and the surrounding area as well as a space with regional and national ambition.”
Tom Ireland   Supercollider Projects Curator Blackpool.

“The exhibition in “The Gallery of The School of Art and Design” was beautifully presented and excellently curated. The overall body of work displayed a broad variety of technical methods / processes and scale, capturing and portraying the essence of Blackpool as Architecture of Pleasure – culminating in a very coherent and engaging exhibition.”    Ann Carragher Fine Art Lecturer for Blackpool and The Fylde College

“I have enjoyed the shows that I have seen BADept curate within both their own space and in other locations around Blackpool. The major gallery in Blackpool is The Grundy Gallery which concentrates on larger scale touring exhibitions so BADept has offered a perfect platform for artists on the rise to show in Blackpool. I welcome any activity that looks to broaden the appeal of the town; I have also used the BADept Gallery space as an alternative venue for the business networking group that I run. In my spare time I act as an Arts Ambassador for Voluntary Arts England and firmly believe in the potential for both activity and engagement with the arts in encouraging economic growth and improving quality of life. I sincerely hope that Adrian continues to develop and grow his work with BADept.”   Nathaniel W Cassidy Arts Ambassador for Voluntary Arts England
