Dragon’s Den event 18/06/15

Last Thursday, our three adult community groups working on the Treasure Trove project joined us for a consultation event themed around the tv programme, Dragon’s Den. The groups got together to explore and discuss their artists’ final designs for the pop up museums. This was followed by a presentation by each group to the other two groups, the Treasure Trove team and a few other audience members consisting of various individuals associated with the project. Although the presentations were not made to four ‘dragons’ and all feedback was kept positive and constructive, the groups were asked to pitch their ideas as though to a new audience and sell their pop up museum idea to us.

After introductions and around 30 minutes discussion time, the groups were allocated a 15 minute slot for their presentations and feedback. Each group gave a very clear and concise presentation of ideas, themes and their artists’ final designs. Our extra audience members were very impressed with the ideas and the effort that had gone into the process of creating the pop up museums. They provided some great feedback for our groups.

We finished the event with a buffet lunch for our participants and a chance to mingle and reflect on the event and the project as a whole. We also had Anthony from CLC Media filming for us. The footage will be a part of our summary video at the end of this part of the project. To see our summary video for the Young Peoples’ part of the project completed last year, please click here.

Thank you to all our groups for taking part in the event and thank you for those who joined us and provided constructive feedback for the groups and artists.
