Item 1: Welcome Ola and Michow back and ask them to update everyone on their vision for Parade
To discuss: How this might need tweaking
Item 2: Mike's needs for the kitchen
To discuss: Do we really want to buy BBQs?; we must have access to a modest kitchen on the Saturday - running water is imperative; is there an outside tap?; Mike and co have four hobs and need four sockets; two 6x2 tables are required - they have oil cloths to cover these surfaces; Marsha is going to check if a magnet will stick to CP's pots, as Mike needs pots to which magnets will stick (?)
Item 3: Mike's needs for the kitchen
To discuss: Where are people going to sit while they eat? Is Ola imagining a picnic-type area?
Item 4: Washing up area
To discuss: Many people in the market will be serving drinks and they'll need a place to wash the glasses/mugs. Mike and I talked about having a series of buckets: A soapy bucket and two clean water buckets for rinsing along with dish towels for drying. This should be factored into the structure. Marsha is very interested in how this space may afford a particular kind of interfacing between/among contributors - a variation on the water cooler - a space for gossip, etc..
Item 5: Joanna's Cocoons
To discuss: Marsha chatted briefly with Joanna on Saturday. One of her cocoons is arriving on Monday; the rest later in the week. We need somewhere to store them...Also, when will be they be installed?
Item 5: Jo's project with Sacramento
Jo is in London and she's coming to our meeting so we discuss developments in her project.
