This month, after nine years as Administrative Assistant at AGAP, Isla Johnston will be leaving us to move on to a full-time post elsewhere. Isla joined AGAP in 2010 when we were based at St Michael’s, Parkhead, and for many became the first friendly point of contact for the organisation. Her excellent people skills meant that she quickly won the hearts of everyone, from artists taking part in exhibitions to school teachers booking workshops or members of the public enquiring about tickets. Isla brought a professional touch to AGAP’s administration – organising, filing, fundraising and bringing a fresh new look to event tickets.
Over the past nine years, she has been an excellent colleague, providing me with terrific support in every practical or pastoral situation that the project has faced. Over those years, we have worked together closely and got to know each other’s family. Together, we have organised big-scale events like the concert of Elgar’s “The Dream of Gerontius” in 2013 with around 300 musical performers to art competitions for primary and secondary schools and countless touring theatre productions. I am hugely grateful to Isla for all that she has done in her role and know that she will be greatly missed by everyone at AGAP. On behalf of all of us, I convey my utmost thanks and wish her, Claus and their family every blessing for the future.
A message from Isla:
It is with very mixed feelings that I will be moving on and I will miss AGAP greatly. I am indebted to everyone I have worked with from the artists, performers, cast and crew to all the members of our monthly events, for making my time here so enjoyable. Stephen has been a huge support and friend to me over the last 9 years and we've organised a lot of events together over that time!
I wish everyone involved with AGAP my best wishes and hope that our paths will cross in the future.
Best wishes, Isla
