Course Description

Prepare to be guided by your tutor through the practical and logistical processes involved in staging an exhibition on this one-day course. 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 along ideas in relation to future exhibitions that they would like to or will be organising.
