‘As the first’ takers on tour of the I’m Not Dead Yet exhibition we really didn’t know what to expect or indeed, how it would go down with our audience – we had never in our 11 year history of annual forums, taken any exhibition of this type on tour with us; so for ourselves as well as our guests, this was a totally new, and previously untested idea.
We needn’t have worried. We could never have anticipated the amazingly positive response it received from all of our guests and the interest it generated. This was evidenced by the often long queue of people at the artist, Malca Schotten’s, stand, all keen to talk to her in more detail about the process of creating the portraits. Having her there each day added to the experience and we believe allowed people to engage much more personally. ‘
