Tuesday 13th December 2011 from 5.30pm – 9.30pm

Lecture Theatre, Mackintosh Building, School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G3 6RQ

Everyone is welcome, whether giving a presentation or not, and there will be small charge to cover the cost of refreshments and for setting up and clearing away afterwards.

Following the continued success of this annual get-together and the general feeling that last year was particularly enjoyable – not just as a popular social event but as a fantastic showcase for members work and projects – this year’s SEDA Show and Tell will be held again in Glasgow. The difference on this occasion is that it will still be term-time so there will be many more people in and around the building than were there last year. We hope that this will encourage even more members to come along to meet each other and hear about our projects and activities – with food and drink as well. Additionally we hope that new members and members of the AECB will be able to join us at the event - telling us all about what they are all doing, why they’ve joined and their ideas for future collaborative working.

Once again we will be in the lovely Mackintosh lecture theatre at the Glasgow School of Art - a truly fabulous place for us all to get together - where we shall be combining presentations with the chance to chat, socialise and partake of refreshments together.

Although you DO have to be a SEDA member (or part of a company membership) to give a talk, you don’t have to be a member - or to give a talk - to join us for this event. This is open evening - members, their friends, and anyone interested in ecological design is welcome to come along. Students are particularly welcome. There will be small charge to cover the costs of making the arrangements and for providing food and drinks for everyone.

The Show and Tell is an increasingly popular and well-attended opportunity for members to talk about their current work, ideas, dreams, activities and projects. The ground rules for presentations are simple – three slides and no more than five minutes for each contributor. If you'd like to give a presentation, prepare a short talk (approx. 5 mins) on any relevant subject - recent projects, new ideas, ecological initiatives, places, landscapes, other works - which inspire you, and allow a little time for feedback/ discussion. The talk will be timed and can be illustrated with up to 3 slides - each of which can be comprised of any number of images - which should be sent in advance to Matt Bridgestock, who has agreed to collate the slides beforehand into a computer-based show for the evening. Try to keep the file sizes down. We have already received notice, and information, for a number of talks - but there are still some slots remaining!

Slides should be sent with your name and the title of your talk to: matt@55northarchitecture.com 

Images must be either JPEG's or PDF's. You must make the filename of your images the name you would like to credit followed by the number (1,2,3), for example: mattbridgestock_1.jpg

Slides should reach Matt by Sunday 11th December.


PLEASE NOTE! A selection from the evenings’ SEDA members presentations will be included in a Members’ Gallery on our website as well as in future issues of SEDA magazine. We will assume that you are giving us permission to do this when you send your images. If you do not want us to use the images for the website or the magazine, please include a note to this effect in the email!

Booking your place

This is very popular event and, although we have a larger venue than in previous years, the number of people we can accommodate is limited by the capacity of the theatre. So, to make sure you have a place and that we have made provisions for everyone to eat and drink on the night, please let Mary Kelly know if you are planning to come along as soon as you can - and whether you'll be giving a talk or not.
