Deb Mullins

“My relationship with Scarabeus happily goes back a long way through our pioneering work in outdoor arts. As kindred spirits we believe in the power of the arts to transform people’s lives. I’m also a huge admirer of their exemplary educational and participatory work. I am delighted to be part of their continuing journey.”
