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.

The picture to the right is a scan of the contract. It was signed on the 1st of November and basically states all the do's and don't Joe Alabaster (the owner of Ultraviolet) has told us. It also shows the amount of money we have paid him. The fee is £30 and the deposit is £60, which we will be getting back when we have handed the keys back.
We will have Ultraviolet for 2 weeks. The original plan was to only have it for 1 week but the contract states we are only allowed to rent it for 2 weeks or more. This basically means we'll have it from the 28th of November until the 12th of December. Having it for such a long time will make it easier for us to put in the furniture and hang pictures up on the wall. 
It also means that we can hang the banner up in Ultraviolet as well as a poster with opening dates and times so people who walk by can have a peak inside. This might result in a few more locals coming to our exhibition! 

Since we lost the space next door we have been in contact with the council about whether we could use part of the side walk outside. Dominic has just gotten back to us explaining that we are allowed to use up to 1.4 metres of the pavement. This is brilliant news as we can put a table outside and passers by might stop and see what's going on.
