So this week I have also finished the project proposal and will be sending it to my lecturer this evening. I had made plans to go to school today and look about some of the things I may need for the project but the weather has rendered me home bound. Since I had planned to go back to school this coming Monday, I will save all my inquiries till then.
I have contacted Nicole Smythe-Johnson to be my adviser. I am now just waiting on a response. If I am without an adviser in the coming weeks, I will seek the help of anyone the National Gallery can spare.
So, I saw my adviser earlier this week and she put some things into perspective for me. There are many things that I fail to consider within the very method of this process. After filling me in on all those extra steps in the process, I now have a better understanding of what I will need to achieve in the coming months for this event.
Along with the basics, I will now have to look at:
- mounting works
- dancers and their costumes
- prepping of the area
- guest speaker (?)
- guest speaker and MC
- tables for refreshments
- roles and responsibilities
- size of team
- signing book and monitor
- expansion of budget
- what is to be printed and when
- how much staff to be present at event
I will use this list to maintain a steady development in my process. Also, for this project it was advised that I get in touch with a curator to help with this project – at least within the planning stage. I have someone in mind, Nicole Smythe, and will contact her this week for her help. Before that I will need to determine how I will pitch the idea to her. To help with that, I will need to make the necessary adjustments to my proposal.
