For our first meeting, our group ran through the points that we discussed on our first getting together to organise the exhibition. We agreed that John would look into exhibiting at Gunwharf and Bill would also look into properties that we could display our work in or any other locations. Here is the feedback that we had from John and Bill...
John spoke to John Sackett at Gunwharf about using the Waterside property however, they are looking for long term rentals. It may not be possible to use this facility but emails can be sent out with enquiries.
John also spoke to Graham at the dockyard museum about using the location there however, no success due to the gates closing at a certain time.
John also contacted Fratton Park however, the location needs to be rented and therefore alot of fundraising would need to be done.
Bill looked into exhibiting with Canalside properties in which this could be possible. Bill also contacted housing agencies to see if there were any properties to display our work in however, access could be an issue due to small hallways. Kings Church was also looked into and this would be possible however, the cost of renting may be high and the content of our images may be too risky to display in a church.
