Sara Roberts, 10 days Chair 2015:
"It was an enormous privilege to work with such a dedicated and lively team, as Chair of 10 days CHALK in 2015. Artists brought shared endeavour, creativity and verve to both the characteristically local issues and those with universal resonance." (2020)
Stephen Boyce, Arts Adviser to Winchester City Council, Chair 10 days Winchester 2012 – 2014:
"Experience tells me that things are cyclical and new initiatives will emerge in their own time and in their own way, but keeping a record is important as a point of reference and as an inspiration to others." (December 2020)
