16th September 2016 - Visit to Nottingham Castle to see Leonardo Da Vinci's 10 drawings from the Royal Collection in addition to Evelyn Gibbs etching and engraving exhibition. A fascinating collection of detailed drawings documenting Da Vinci's famous pieces including A Study of St Anne, and Cat's, Lion's and a Dragon's Head. Within this exhibition it is clear that science and art become intertwined to portray Da Vinci as the genius he was who was way ahead of his time.
''It should not be hard for you to stop sometimes and look into stains of walls, or ashes of a fire or clouds or mud or places , in which , if you consider well enough you may find really marvellous ideas....''

''Episode 10. One half of Humm Media, David Woods joins Ben to slay the super-villain of the art world: SELF-PROMOTION and PR.
Humm Media are PR and communications specialists and David brings a wealth of experience across publishing, editorial and marketing to discuss what makes an engaging campaign, unique promotion and why the greatest client relationships are built on personal connections and the human touch.
There is much to learn in this one as Ben and David trade experiences of good and bad e-communications etiquette, various innovative ways to get noticed in a fiercely competitive creative industry and why many artistic folk struggle with the idea of championing their own work.
Self-promotion often does not come naturally to most people in the arts. Let’s face it, the majority of us like the idea of spending 100% of our time creating our work and allowing someone else to do the rest. But the truth is, with multiple channels at our fingertips including social media, email and apps; we all have to find engaging ways to shout about the work, otherwise we may go unseen.
Episode 10 of Arrest All Mimics addresses a number of indirect ways of creating content that people will share, without directly shouting about ourselves.'' taken from: http://www.artsthread.com/business-start-up-self-promotion-and-pr/
