Hallam Internet, in Nottingham, has done a good analysis of last week’s #NottinghamRocks campaign on twitter. Complete with their selection of the best/most interesting of the tweets. Since there were some 16,000 on the day, I am glad they decided Less is More for the article.
Mention was made, in an earlier blog post, of the County Council’s Arts Fund. They have updated the page on their website with some case studies of successful applications and the art/creative results. Worth a read if you think this could help you.
The Queen and members of her family will be in Nottingham on Wednesday, 13 June. So get to the Market Square early/avoid the Market Square [delete as applicable]. The City Council website has an outline itinerary of her day which starts at the train station, without times (presumably these will be published closer to the day). You could get ready for this by watching the newsreel of her visit in May 1968, courtesy of the Media Archive for Central England – you can see her arrive at the train station, walk in the rain in the Market Square ….
University’s Fine Art Degree Show is currently on at the Djanogly Art Gallery, but only until this Sunday, 10 June. Their website has the details and images from the past two years, why not go along and see if this year is even better.
Exhibition Submissions for 2013, at the local Surface Gallery, are invited. Groups, curators and individuals are all welcome to make a proposal. The form is on their website, and while you are there, how about applying for their Open Show this year, the deadline is 28 June for submissions.
End of year Showcase for Confetti students is next Tuesday, 12 June, from noon to 6pm. You can see what students of film, animation, music production, sound installations and more have been up to this past year.
NTU students are not to be outdone by any of the others. They have a pop-up shop running this Thursday and Friday, on Lower Parliament Street next to Currys, run by final year decorative art students.
