As no one in our group is quite sure what kind of photographs we want to display, it has been a tricky start. Deciding on the venue, the publicity and how we want to exhibit our work is a difficult decision, and therefore this week is just for thinking of ideas. The image to the right, is a mind map of what we have been talking about. We are all looking at different venues, as well as contacting them, to get an idea of what we are able to achieve.
Every venue has its positives and negatives and this has been an important conversation on the facebook group we have created. Some say that a pub will be a brilliant plan because it has both an indoor and outdoor area, it will guarantee an audience and everyone loves going to the pub! However, the photo on the left shows some negative aspects of exhibiting in a pub.
As well as looking at rather obvious places to display our work I also wanted to look at different ideas that might be more expensive but would definitely be worth it. First I decided to look at the spinnaker tower. Apparently it is quite a popular venue to hire for corporate or private events:
Although I do think £1,020 is too expensive for us students.
