The event took place at London’s Truman Brewery in the Dray Walk Gallery, Loading Bay, Courtyard and Vibe Bar. The venues provided the backdrop for exhibitions, spoken word performances, comedy, live graffiti, and workshops.
There was an exclusive ‘Girls Reframed’ exhibition, an immersive theatre experience with artistic consultancy provided by Punchdrunk Enrichment plus many more surprises.
This complex yet vibrant event drew on a number of resources from our southern team including the provision of a broad technical infrastructure including Lighting, Sound and Audio Visual technologies as well as our unique Digital Event Services.
In each of the spaces we provided LED screens, exhibition and event lighting as well as distributed sound systems for speeches, performances and back ground music.
The team were also asked to design and build a bespoke exhibition installation featuring a pay phones which were configured so listeners could hear the story of a girl living in poverty who has experienced FGM. Having sourced old payphones they were modified by our digital team to provide a “digital trigger” so an audio track plays through the handset when the receiver is lifted.
These payphones were then removed and reinstalled at the Girl Summit hosted by the Department of International Development at which David Cameron spoke.
In the Courtyard Saville provided 2 plasma screens placed behind Perspex built into a Graffiti Wall which allowed a live Twitter Feed to be viewed whilst the wall was then transformed into a working piece of Art.
Our Digital Team were asked to source and install audio tracks onto wireless headphones. These were used by guests in the amazing immersive experience built and designed by Drèsd and Punch Drunk. This exhibition was a ‘women only’ zone so Saville female technicians were provided.
