Royal Academy TextWorkshop

It was great to welcome delegates from the Imperial War Museum, the Science Museum, British Motor Museum, Tyne and Wear Museums, and the Oxford University of Natural History, as well as several fellow freelancers and independent consultants. We enjoyed a tour of the Royal Academy’s current exhibition Abstract Expressionism, and a day full of good discussions and learning. Here is some of the feedback:

“Both Rebecca and Dea convinced me to let go and allow my writing to flow.”

“My main learning outcome is to consider my writing from the point of view of the visitor.”

“This course should be compulsory for anyone who is writing for an audience.”

“I learned what content to include in labels and other gallery texts.”

“It was a great day and very confidence boosting.”

“My main learning outcome was, don’t be afraid!”

“I will have more confidence to apply a framework to our interpretation.”

“Everything was useful.”

“The best part of the day was the exercises which were daunting but informative.”

“Your top tips are my checklist when I write.”
