Threads from Visartsnet - thank you

  • Rachel asked for feedback on programmes entirely internally assessed.

  • Tim shared a further scholarship template for the benefit of the community.

  • Zoe shared a link to the new Bowerbank Ninow  artists database

  • Consent forms and policies - similar to commercial ‘model release forms’. These safeguard particularly photography students and art departments when displaying and publishing work that contains images of individuals - a great discussion and helpful examples of forms thanks to all who contributed.

  • External submission dates; confirmed as Level One Wednesday 18 October, Level Two Wednesday 25 October, Level Three and Scholarship Thursday 2 November and found on the NZQA website under ‘key dates’.

  • Jeanette asked for suggestions of things to see during a visit to Auckland with students

  • Candice asked for painting conventions resources/suggestions
