ICS was commissioned to create, manage and tour an exhibition of photographs of the building of the scheme. This involved identifying potential venues, creating a program that would link with each one and working with the Electric Authority to publicise the exhibition.


  • Designing exhibition concept
  • Selecting 110 photographic images
  • Printing and framing images
  • Creating labels for each image and story boards for exhibition
  • Identifying and selecting venues
  • Managing exhibition transportation
  • Installing and deinstalling at each venue
