- No Comment – Red Zone Response?
Meeting called to discuss formal statement, mission, and outreach.
At the beginning of Meeting a paper from the Google group was presented:
“Statement of Goals, Principles and Functions”.
We will be co-creating a manifesto, statement, declaration.
Facilitators: Mike and Tomi
Important: For several meetings, AC has discussed the problematic nature of daily meetings and the sheer amount of agenda items per day, leaving little time for thorough discussion of issues. In response, a proposal (see the tread “meeting outline”) was put forward that we reduce the number of weekly meetings to 6 days and that we streamline meetings by dividing them between “Art” and “Culture” days (3 for each) so as to enable enough space for proposals as well as broader philosophical/ ethical concerns as to how we address the art world and NYC at large.
