Abstract

A pinhole photography exhibition, entitled Tinned Cities, was organised thanks to the collaboration between the University of Valencia and the London School of Economics. Students from both universities took part in an interdisciplinary project based on a real decision making process in the context of cultural management. The implementation of a market research by UV students determined the 23 pictures to be exhibited. Students at LSE were responsible for writing descriptions of each picture. Most of the pictures selected represent icon cities. In order to test students´ participation, motivation and satisfaction with this innovative project, we undertook a quantitative research. Results showed high levels of participation, motivation and satisfaction. Artistic black and white pinhole pictures have been successfully used as a pedagogical resource.
