Taught by: A respected industry expert, Kirsten Cooke.
Prepare to be guided by your tutor through all the processes involved in staging an exhibition on this one-day course. That means starting with the initial concept and research, moving to agreements and layout and finally, to the hanging of artworks. We will also advise you on insurance, public liability and health and safety requirements in public spaces. As well as developing your exhibition design and production skills, it's a chance to make useful links with suppliers and exchange ideas with the rest of the group.
You will be capable of organising an exhibition from start to finish, as well as appreciating a successful exhibition design layout. You'll be aware of the procedures between galleries and artists.
Who Should Attend
Artists, craftspeople or anyone eager to learn about the practical side of organising an exhibition.
