I had a meeting with Jo from Exeter university this morning to go through the images for possible use as the main invite image to use on email invites.
We settled on the below image for a number of reasons, we thought this fit the brief criteria most accurately out of all the images I selected . These were, to show clear academic learning, with parental involvement, where the child was the focus of the image and learning. We wanted the image to be slightly traditional, as we thought if it was too alternative it would alienate people from attending potentially.
The academics group meeting is an online zoom meeting of academics researching various areas and avenues of alternative education. I will be presenting a short video compilation aimed at showcasing the variety of ways an education can happen outside the constraints of a traditional school setting. I will be making this video over the next couple of weeks to show on the day. Invitations are being sent out to relevant staff and interested parties connected to education through the government , and education specialists in the coming weeks.
Over the next week I plan to have a rough draft of the leaflet invite. I have said I will attempt this. I am not a designer, but for ease and control and finances I am going to attempt a design, but if I feel I cannot make it look professional enough I am going to supply the image and pass on to someone else instead.
