BAfM Conference

Today I joined the Reading Urban Sketchers at a special event drawing the annual conference of the British Association of Friends of Museums at Reading Town Hall.

I joined the party for the afternoon session and while I drew the scene above in the beautiful Victoria Hall I heard about all kinds of projects – from the reopening of the Abbey Quarter in Reading to community engagement in Düsseldorf.

The atmosphere in the conference was great, quite a few of the delegates were interested in our sketching and a few joined in.

Before joining the conference I spent a little time in the morning sketching in Reading Museum, which shares a building with the Town Hall. Where else can you look in one direction at a classic 60’s TV set then turn your head slightly and see a giant boar’s head.
