With the seven week holiday about to commence -yes, I know, bloody teachers don’t do anything all year then get loads of time off -it was time to put some thought to this year’s project. Last year it was Liverpool Biennial with 10 exhibitions in two days, so this one had to be bigger, involve way more travelling and keep me out of mischief!
