A & C Minutes – Dec. 19, 2011

No Facilitation

Minutes: Justin Wedes & Adrian

Note: These are two different minutes. Edited by Adrian.

Two A & C meetings were held on Monday, Dec. 19th 2011.

I came to 60 Wall Street around 5.50 and looked around for other Arts & Culture members. I met with Lopi while she was attending an Occupy Farms meeting and we had an informal Direct Action Painters (D.A.P). talk. After waiting another 15 minutes for other A & C members to arrive, I picked out a table and placed a large Arts & Culture sign down. Paul, Blithe and I waited another 10 minutes before starting our meeting. During our meeting Noah and an artist named Nao Matsumoto stopped by.

At around the same time as this meeting another A & C meeting was apparently taking place.

The two minutes will be combined to reflect the view of my (Adrian) perspective. I will first defer to the other meeting as it consisted of more members, around seven. The number expanded to twelve when Paul, Lopi, Nao, Daniele and myself arrived. Noah and Zach also attended this meeting toward its conclusion.

Things are proceeding.  Matt is going to approach Outreach and has been in touch with Judson Church.   Probably the event will occur on a Saturday afternoon at around 4 pm.  Matt is going to speak to Community Relations and to PR about it. 

Deirdre (DDAY) reports that the Visibility Vests have arrived but first attempts to mark them failed so she is going to try something different.  Leora is out of town but had approached Outreach and Design about the marking Foreclosures project.     
Johnny (@snowywilderness)attended the Finance meeting and followed the procedures in re funds. Living Theatre has offered space on an emergency basis. He also noted that there is a law that music cannot be played within 50 feet of a monument.
