Portfolio Reviews: The CONTROL Confessional Booth

Working alongside Gordon MacDonald, Miniclick’s CONTROL programme includes a series of talks, discussions, exhibitions, workshops and participatory events. No festival programme is complete today without the obligatory portfolio review, but being who we are, we have decided to do things a little differently.

Step beyond the velvet curtains and into our full-size, custom built CONTROL Confessional Booth to confess your sins to one of our esteemed experts. Bring your portfolio along and receive some advice on your work along with the complete absolution of your sins.

Reviewers include…
