LAN Slide Slam
Tuesday 10th May, 6pm
3 Abbey Close, Bloom Building, Birkenhead CH41 5FQ
Thank you to everyone who has signed up to do the Slide Slam at Convenience Gallery. We still have some spaces left and actually, if anyone wants to just introduce themselves, say a few words, make an announcement, advertise something they are doing etc in the usual LAN way, then you are welcome to do that also. See more info below about how the Slide Slam works and please let us know if you’d like to have a go. Otherwise ALL WELCOME, Please share the flyer attached and see you there!
Speakers at the LAN meetings usually talk about a project that they are working on or a project they want to start. This is great! BUT, we also want to encourage speakers to come and present about themselves and their work, to say, this is who I am/what I do/what I think. The LAN Slide Slam is your chance to do this.
You will be asked to show 10 images, each for 40 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. So you get 6 minutes to do your presentation.
Other than the format of 10 slides and 40 seconds per slide, you can talk about whatever you want: your interests in general, work you have made in the past, exhibitions or projects you’ve been part of, specific themes that interest you, other artists who inspire you – whatever you think you need to say to connect with the kind of people who you want to link up with.
We have a limited number of spaces for the presentations, so if you would like to introduce Liverpool to your work, please email us ASAP to let us know. We’ll take names on a first come first served basis.
And if you’ve got any questions at all just get in touch. We look forward to seeing you there!
