Borrowing equipment for an exhibition or for use in public spaces
If you wish to use Media Centre equipment for an exhibition, or in a public place or gallery, you will need to complete a Work Proposal Form which you can download here. Please read the conditions of loan at the back of the form first, and have it signed by your academic tutor and technician supporting your project. Please then bring the form to the Media Centre to discuss the specific equipment you wish to borrow. To be sure we can meet your request we would ask you to return this form completed to the Media Centre at least 7 days before the event.
If you have any queries about this please come and speak with us anytime.
