Cultural Organisations study trip

Yesterday, Global Media Management visited the Nuffield Theatre, John Hansard Gallery, and Turner Sims Concert Hall. There were lots of great insights to help them develop their understanding of management within some specific organisational settings. The exhibition at the Hansard Gallery, Barthes/Burgin is curated by colleagues at Winchester School of Art.
