I had an organisational role at Platform P where Ray White (co-curator) called me ‘Ring Master’. This event allowed me to gain great experience in the management of Live Art works at an inspirationally diverse performance art weekend. My role consisted of timetabling talks, video documentation, invigilating, artists and curators assistance and general management of events. I learnt how to quickly problem solve, (for example when an art work went missing within the hotel), multi-task and successfully assist performance artists.
The location of the project was really interesting as it was based in one of the oldest hotels in Plymouth.

“Art can happen in different places, different interesting places and by different people!
More projects like this is what Plymouth needs!”  – Ryan Curtis
