FACT: Liverpool Artists’ Network: LAN Slide Slam
LAN Slide Slam
Wednesday 12th April 2023, 6.30pm
FACT, 88 Wood Street, Liverpool L1 4DQ
Next LAN meeting will be a Slide Slam at FACT, which we are really excited about as we’ve not had a LAN meeting there before and it is a great location in the middle of town. There is a limit on numbers so we’re managing that via FREE Eventbrite tickets.
As well as the Slide Slam presentations, if anyone wants to just introduce themselves, say a few words, make an announcement, advertise something they are doing etc in the usual LAN way, then you are welcome to do that also.
LAN SLIDE SLAM
Speakers at LAN meetings usually talk about a project that they are working on or a project they want to start. This is great! BUT, we also want to encourage speakers to come and present about themselves and their work, to say, this is who I am/what I do/what I have been thinking about. The LAN Slide Slam is your chance to do this.
If you’d like to present:
You will be asked to show 10 images, each for 40 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. So you get 6 minutes to do your presentation.
Other than the format of 10 slides and 40 seconds per slide, you can talk about whatever you want: your interests in general, work you have made in the past, exhibitions or projects you’ve been part of, specific themes that interest you, other artists who inspire you – whatever you think you need to say to connect with the kind of people who you want to link up with.
We have a limited number of spaces for the presentations, so if you would like to introduce Liverpool to your work, please email us ASAP to let us know. We’ll take names on a first come first served basis.
If you’d like to just come and watch:
If you just want to watch the presentations you’ll need to book a FREE eventbrite ticket HERE. The ticket is for a place to view the presentations.
We’re meeting in FACT’s Gallery 2 space (located on the 1st floor, facing the bar) where there are a limited number of chairs, however you are welcome to sit on the floor if chairs run out – there are beanbags too! Please let us know if you would like a chair reserving due to accessibility needs. The space has full wheelchair access. Pease let us know by contacting us via email if you have any other requirements relating to accessibility and we will discuss the best ways we can accommodate you. email@example.com.
