So, we’re about halfway through the exhibition and have had around 1,300 people through the doors which is not bad for a ‘pop up’ exhibition! But it’s not all about numbers and fortunately feedback on the exhibition has been overwhelmingly positive.
Comments from the visitor book and on twitter include:
“Thought-provoking exhibition”…”Highly recommended”…”Fascinating”…”excellent exhibition”…”well worth a visit!”
As the Pro Vice Chancellor for Humanities and Social Sciences Charles Harvey (a supporter of the exhibition) said “The exhibition and events seem to have fired the imagination for many. What an outstanding success!”
And this is what one visitor had to say about it 🙂
One of the best things about working on Newcastle City Futures has been meeting and working with our vast network of partners. The exhibition couldn’t have happened without the generosity of our partners, who have given us images, objects and models as well as good will!
Shona Thomas, Curatorial Assistant at the Discovery Museum, has been especially helpful and has written this lovely blog post ‘Sharing the Love’ about the experience…www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/sharing-the-love/
