Olympic Course

There are now further details available about the course I’m leading for the Museum of London on the edge of the London Olympic site which I mentioned earlier in Lea Valley 7 Mervyn Day 1. You can find out more at Art of …photography: Stratford and the Olympic Park on the Museum’s web site, which also has a link to a PDF document giving the course timetable, learning outcomes and find out more about the course tutor.

Of course, almost everything that was on the site has gone, and the Olympic site itself is closed to the public. Although I’ve planned several walks to take pictures as a part of the course, by April there may be different path closures and the exact routes may have to change. But as well as the Greenway and the View Tube, where the course will be based, we will also be going on other footpaths close to the site, as well as the viewing areas open to the public in the Westfield Centre.

Those who come on the course – limited to 15 people –  will bring their digital cameras to use so we will be able to look at the work that people have taken. We will also be inviting all those taking part to put a small selection of their pictures from the event on the Museum of London website.

I think it should be fun – and am busy praying and making sacrifices for good weather for that weekend, Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 April 2012 from 10.30am-4pm. Enrolment is now open through the Museum of London Office on 0207 001 9844, and the two day course costs £100 (concs £35).
