This course is for artists, craftspeople or anyone eager to learn about the practical side of organising an exhibition.
The course starts 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 knowledge of innovative exhibition design, it's a chance to exchange ideas with the rest of the group. Students are welcome to bring alone ideas in relation to future exhibitions that they would like to or will be organising.
By the end of the course 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.
