I was at a Christmas party last night – the ones where you are invited to go along because Audiences London are a client organisation of the hosts (in this case our landlords), so you have to do the whole networking, fact-finding thing whilst trying to make a scramble for the canapes.
And who says nothing interesting ever comes out of these things. I came across some interesting people at Light and Design Associates, fascinating creatives that use lighting to create an all together more welcoming atmosphere and have worked with many theatres, galleries and museums in London. This is useful because the welcome to any arts venue is one of many factors that brings audiences back and often the little things like lighting can make a big difference.
