Developing my action plan proved to be an invaluable tool in managing my time effectively and staying on top of my workload. It provided me with a clear roadmap of tasks and goals, allowing me to prioritise and allocate my time efficiently. 
While keeping to the plan was occasionally challenging, especially as curating the Art Foundry magazine completely took over 3 weeks, it served as a constant reminder of what needed to be done and helped me stay focused and motivated. 
Moreover, the action plan enabled me to reflect on my progress and identify areas where I needed to catch up. By regularly assessing my accomplishments against the plan, I gained valuable insights into my strengths and weaknesses, enabling me to make necessary adjustments and stay on track.


At the onset of our Final Major Projects, I encountered a significant struggle in selecting a final concept that resonated with my vision and goals. Overwhelmed by the multitude of possibilities, I realised the importance of seeking advice and exploring various potential options. I engaged in thorough research, delving into different subjects and experimenting with diverse ideas. This exploration process allowed me to gain valuable insights and clarity, leading me towards the concept of subconscious biases. 
Through careful consideration and self-analysis, I gradually reached a point where I felt confident in settling with this, hopefully captivating concept. 
The initial struggle proved instrumental in pushing me to expand my horizons and ultimately discover a concept that sparked my passion and creative drive. 

During the planning, progress, and production stages of my Final Major Project, I had to confront the realisation that I have an ingrained tendency to be a "last-minute manager." This admission became particularly evident as I faced new problems and challenges throughout my FMP journey. 
Initially, I struggled with not having a clear idea to work from at the start of the assignment, which was new for me, I later felt a big sense of overwhelm when curating the Art Foundry magazine. However, in the final two weeks of the project, I harnessed all the elements and ideas I had been developing in my mind.


Although this might not have been the most optimal approach in hindsight, it is my way of coping with deadlines. Thankfully, as the deadline got closer, I found myself more productive. With a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve, I worked swiftly and efficiently to bring my ideas to life. The experience served as a valuable lesson, demonstrating that even though I tend to thrive under pressure, having a well-defined plan and a proactive approach from the beginning would undoubtedly alleviate unnecessary stress. 

art foundry planning, production and progress

During the development of the Art Foundry magazine, it was essential for me and my fellow student curator to maintain a high level of organisation. This involved effectively managing various elements and information collected from individuals featured in the magazine, while also addressing the challenge of working remotely on occasion. Clear communication was key to ensure that our efforts were coordinated and that there was no duplication of work.

To facilitate our organisation, we utilised tools such as Excel sheets and OneNote files, which were shared

between us. We found that colour coding proved to be the simplest and most effective method for indicating individual responsibilities and developmental stages. Additionally, we would leave each other notes during times when we both felt overwhelmed, offering support and guidance.

These organisational strategies played a crucial role in the success of the Art Foundry magazine, ensuring a consistent workflow and greatly enhancing our planning and progress skills throughout the production process.
