“This collaboration presents a different opportunity, a different atmosphere and a totally different type of visitor! Really interesting i’ve talked to many people casually, in fact the longest conversation was for over an hour! Im surprised by the way visitors in this situation differ so much from say visitors in an art gallery environment, it’s really enjoyable!”
