Welcome to another archive diary entry. This time around I wanted to talk a bit about some of the activities that took place at the end of last month. One of which was the talk that Neil did with Goldsmiths University. The event was scheduled for early last year but was postponed because of the pandemic. Neil and the team at Goldsmiths really wanted to do a physical event but due to the closure of all universities that just wasn’t possible. However, all was not lost. Thanks to Zoom the event took place online and was attended by people all across the country! Eddie Otchere led the conversation with myself and Neil, who thoroughly enjoyed the discussion. We covered a range of topics including Neil’s experiences as a photographer and racism in the 1970s. You can watch the full video here.
February really proved to be a month for putting plans into motion despite it being so difficult to schedule in offline activities. Therefore the only option was to continue to be as responsive as possible in the current climate. This meant exploring new technology and software, as well as embracing new ways of connecting with our audiences. Plenty to do and think about this month to prepare us for the coming year. We have had many exhibitions cancelled and events postponed but we have still managed to do some great events online. So we will continue to do so.
