Took the BA students on the Creativity module to the V&A today. Originally DG had planned to go to the Design Museum but last year very few people turned up as they had to pay to get in. Students don’t change. They would probably rather go down the pub with the money they saved.
Anyway I has suggested to DG that we should go to the V&A instead as it was free to get in with a diversity of creative styles on show and the Decode exhibition was still on. I thought this would suit these technologically inclined lot. He agreed. I did my spiel about how good it was but only three students were convinced to cough up some money to go. As I say, students don’t change.
I love the V&A. It was a sunny and warm enough to sit outside for coffee for March.
