We will be holding a planning meeting at The Hub in Westminster on January 9th at 6.30pm so that we can really begin to develop the Exhibition plans and get people fully involved. We would like to invite all those interested to come along. This will give participants the opportunity to look at the premises for the Exhibition, help plan the layout for the exhibition, and also establish exhibitors roles in the planning/smooth running of the exhibition.
PLEASE NOTE – to gain access to The Hub on Jan 9th we will need your full name so the receptionists will know whom to let in for our meeting.
Things have moved on a lot since our last meeting in a number of respects.
a) First The Westminster Hub have offered us their premises for the Photo Exhibition on May 19th These are really exceptional premises and will help to make the Exhibition a success and it is right in the centre of London too. We are holding the planning meeting there on Jan 9th so that you all get a chance to look at it.
b) The Media Trust is really keen on our idea for an Exhibition, and is now fully supporting it and will also join us at this planning meeting. They have a project to encourage citizen journalism.
c) The Media Trust tell us that they will come along on the day and also plan to involve the Community Channel, and will film interviews and also the Exhibition itself.
d) The Media Trust have invited us to become a Beacon Hub for their lottery funded Citizen Journalist project and this we are discussing with them now. If we do become a Beacon Hub then it will mean that we will be linked to a Single Publishing Interface to enable those stories that members want to distribute more widely to be published to media partners (BBC, ITV, local and national press.) They are particularly interested in our Exhibition, as they want to ensure that photojournalism is part of their plans to encourage journalism amongst citizens in general.
So come along to this meeting if you have already expressed an interest in exhibiting, or if you want to be involved and help us make the planning for this Exhibition a success.
We look forward to seeing many of you there!.
