On this day I started off by scanning in and putting together an essay on John Flaxman from a book, which will be put into the resource room of the gallery. After this I was given the opportunity to sit in on there programming meeting, they have one of these every three months just before the new exhibition. The purpose of these meetings is to go over the diary for the next few months, but what I was surprised by was that they were planning things up to a year in advance.
The discussion didn’t just revolve around in house projects but there were several discussions about reaching out to the wider community, which I have observed time and time again so far on my placement is a big focus for the gallery. This meeting gave me the opportunity to observe several points of view, from the marketing side of the company to the learning teams side, on the up coming events. Overall this meeting was a great opportunity to see how the whole Ikon team come together and work cohesively.
