However, if I did attend College of Camberwell I would…

Kids in Museums

6th March 2018 I attended the Kids in Museums event. Not being sure what to expect, this was a networking event to promote the Takeover Day initiative run by the Kids in Museums organisation. The Brymbo Heritage Organisation did a presentation on the Takeover Days that they have run in recent years, which I found to be really interesting. There was similarity between the Brymbo project and my Galeri Exhibition piece on the evacuation of children from Liverpool to Caernarfon. 21st February 2018 I applied for my ticket today on Eventbrite for the Kids in Museums event to be held…

Student Wall @ Galeri Caernarfon

6th April 2018 I contacted Lisa and asked about removing the work, as today is the final day of the agreed contract period. However due to other circumstances I have been asked to leave the work up for the time being. 20th March 2018 I finished adding images to the wall in preparation for the Easter holidays. There was a small issue that turned out to be a non-issue as far as I was concerned. Someone had complained about the content of one of my images and I was asked to remove it. I was however quite proud of the…
