Re-Imagining the poster presentation

When and where?

9:45 am- 4:00 pm at Redbank House in Manchester city centre on Wednesday 30th January 2019.

Aim & content:

Your poster presentation advertises your project / research. It should combine text and graphics to present in a way that is visually interesting and accessible and allows you to display your work to a large group of people to talk to and receive feedback from interested viewers.

Sometimes, we end up with an A0 piece of laminated card with too much writing that’s too small and too detailed with not enough colour and graphics and after the conference, it goes in the cupboard to gather dust… or in the bin 🙁

Well, how about doing something different? How about making a poster that’s vibrant, 3D, interactive and lives well beyond the conference? A poster that really generates interest and conversation because it can also communicate with patients, the public and other healthcare professionals!

NHS R&D North West teamed up with creative artist Jana Kennedy to offer a fantastic creative workshop on how to bring a poster to life and make it stand out from the crowd!

Attendees were asked to bring with them a poster they had already done or were working on, or a summary / draft of work they had been involved in.

This was a creative workshop using craft materials, there were no digital elements involved.

Who was this workshop aimed at? 

This workshop was aimed at anyone who wanted to be a bit more imaginative with their poster and felt up to the creative challenge.

The cost was £90 + VAT to attend
