Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

As a group we still haven't made a final decision on the venue, it is getting to be quite frustrating as the group seems to be split in half at the moment. The first half is thinking about the pyramid club and how it would be a fantastic place to exhibit, there will be more than enough space and I believe that more people are willing to come to the pyramid centre than to an abandoned or vacant building. The pyramid club is quite an impressive place to have an exhibition and it'll be unique - at the same time though, the pyramid club is rather costly. The second half is thinking about getting a little venue called Ultraviolet (right) on Albert Road. It used to be a gallery space, but is currently empty. We can hire the space for a whole week for only £30! The space is very small though and I feel that with such a small space we will not be able to have creative freedom. We are going to view Ultraviolet tomorrow to get an idea of the gallery space - if it can accommodate 9 artists. If not then we are going to go with the pyramid club.
