Around 15 students attended the presentation and it was a fairly successful event. It was an enjoyable experience and I received positive feedback from all of the participants. However, I feel that some of my expectations were not met and I learned some powerful lessons. Some people left the straight after the presentation, either due to other commitments or a misunderstanding of the invitation, which was ultimately a fault of my own. Others stayed and participated in post presentation discussion, which was a very useful experience for me as an artist and an events organiser.
After the event, I decided to hold a discussion group about my research and practice. I thought this would be a better way to get feedback from others and create discussion about relevant artists and subjects.
This post will be followed by the results of my presentation and discussion group, including transcriptions of conversation and snippets of written commentary.
