Today we looked at 2 hopeful venues for the exhibition. We all met at the Corn Exchange in Leeds centre to have a look around. I have been to the Corn Exchange a few times before and my concern was that it did not seem very busy whenever I had been in there. However after looking round, it became clear that the venue was very well suited to our needs. With plenty of space for all 44 of us, toilet facilities, available food from the shops above and the reputation that the Exchange has.
Below are some photos of the downstairs area where the exhibition would take place.
We also went to look at another venue after leaving the Corn Exchange. The Heart in Headingley is a building that houses small exhibitions and local community classes. As we were walking round it soon became clear that the area was unsuitable for our exhibition, there was simply not enough space to house every bodies work, and the location of the room was too out of way of general public to gain any passer by attention. We took their details just in case, but so far, the Corn Exchange is clearly the most ideal place to have our exhibition.
