His talk was on how to run an independent gallery, and he gave everyone present some great insight into how Third Floor Gallery was founded, and how they have managed to put on an absolutely top draw programme of exhibitions throughout 2010 despite receiving no Arts Council funding, and relying on small donations by visitors and supporters of the Gallery, with additional support from sponsors such as University of Wales, Newport
Joni is an excellent speaker, very relaxed and fun in his presentation, while still giving his audience a lot of information and food for thought. The event was well-attended and very well received, with drinks in The Dispensary afterwards, too. Let’s hope his inspiring talk prompts photographers in the North West to consider taking a lead from the great work done by Third Floor Gallery to further boost the wider programme of quality photographic events in the North West.
Joni, I raise my glass to you mate; job very well done. 🙂
