We met at Brighton Train Station at 8.30 am and went straight to Kings Cross and St Pancras, then on to the Angel station on the underground. Then we went over to the Business Design Centre in Islington where the conference was.

We set up all of the stuff and discussed what we were going to do. We had tea and lots of water because it was so hot.

We went all around the Learning Disability Today Conference and did some networking, telling everyone about Oska Bright and the films we were showing. We gave lots of flyers away, together with some key rings.

We talked to lots of people with a learning disability who were film makers, and lots of organisations. They were very interested in Oska Bright.

We showed films from the 2005 and 2007 Oska Bright Festivals. We worked together as a team. It was hard work but we enjoyed ourselves.

People said that the films were good, and hopefully many people from there will make films in the future.
