Week 88 at work

  • Agreed our retail approach for Hogarth exhibition which includes sending a brief to local artists for bespoke items
  • Trained 15 or so people on hte basics of using Trello for task management
  • 1:1s with my digital team who are working on breaking down Moved by Conflict, prototyping our digital signage (due April-May), website phase two and more besides
  • Researched exhibition charges so that we could agree the charges for Nature, Camera, Action! exhibition
  • Met the local arts audience group for a catch up and to meet Ann from Audience Agency who gave us an update on the Audience Finder project. The general vibe is that things have changed and we may need to strike out on our own for the kinds of insights we’ll be needing. Using Audience Finder to meet our finding agreement.
