In 2015, the year of the 50th anniversary of the Allport Bequest, a steering committee set about establishing a Friends of the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts (FOTA) in order to: better inform the public about Allport, and to generate more interest in the collection; to advocate the value of this heritage as widely as possible; and to present events and activities for members to encourage information sharing and knowledge of the collection and relevant heritage.

FOTA Committee:

  • Richard Flanagan (Patron)
  • Amanda Wojtowicz (President)
  • Anita Hansen (Vice-President)
  • Nadia Ayliffe(Secretary/Treasurer)
  • Committee members: Marian Jameson, Ann Hughes, Allport Curator
