Event creation and organisation for art collective SAVORR’s annual socials. The client wanted a bespoke event that involved participation and interaction, wanting to target a student audience (NUA). The client particularly wanted the event to educate this new audience on what SAVORR was and how students could be involved in the future.
Selected and working as part of a team, we proposed an event which highlighted the problems of being anti-social particularly in students, wanting to create a student tailored experience. We pitched the idea to the client of having an audience activated event where the viewer was encouraged to use anti-social devices while being in a “social environment”, this would be a space where the audience could project their phone screens onto multiple monitors and big screens- sharing their anti-social behaviours with other “anti-socials”. Screens displaying conversations from the outside audience as they watched a live recording of the event was also proposed along with possible conversations we wanted all audiences to engage with. These ideas were pitched to the client who greenlit the event.As a team we selected and worked in a venue, managing equipment, health and safety risks and the installing of the event. We also assisted in creating the visuals for the events promotion which was used by the client.
The event was successful and brought a new audience’s attention to SAVORR and what the collective was. Our involvement as students showed how our conceptual ideas could be applied to event curation.
