You may have had the opportunity to view the One LP Project exhibition by William Ellis at the conference, consisting large portraits in the atrium area and a series of photographs adjacent to the lecture theatre.
One LP is a unique and critically acclaimed portraiture photography project that explores the inspirational qualities of music recordings and the impact that they have on people’s lives. It consists a portrait of an artist with a favourite recording. Each photograph is accompanied by a short interview that explores the meaning and value to the subject.
The One LP project is offered as a bespoke art event consisting of a pop up exhibition with seminar/workshop options.The presentation concept has been developed to appeal to arts, music, literary organisations and educational settings.
The flexibility of its presentation modes means that an event can be tailored to your programme, either as a stand-alone or as an integrated activity.

“One LP is a marvellous idea, superbly executed. The range of subjects (human and musical) is wide indeed, often surprising, sometimes touching, always interesting. May it go on and on!”
