In order to mark MHAW I decided to make a workplace portrait everyday and share on social media. Today being the last day of the mini project, I saw this as a good opportunity to make work outside the broader project and experiment with different ways to make work. Having conducted some previous research into the Renaissance and Baroque period I wanted to attempt to make work with further intention and structure.
I also attended a multi agency meeting with a range of services based in Stockport to explain my project and ask for future collaboration. As a result I made a contact called Gemma who works for a mental health drop in centre named Making Space. This represents an exciting development and an opportunity to distribute my final project. I also made another contact at the local housing group Stockport Homes who run a number of initiatives.
As a result of making connections I have the opportunity to photography the Mayor of Stockport this week who has shown an interest in my project and stated in principle that he will help with gaining some exposure. In preparation for making the most of this opportunity, this week I begun to use off camera flash in order to further my practice. I have also begun to make mock ups of a newspaper InDesign document. I have requested some samples of newspaper design options and intend to explore this further.
