Minutes 1st November 2011
DATE Tuesday 1st November 2011
LOCATION Royal Festival Hall, Southbank
THOSE PRESENT: Scott, Charlotte, Karem, Cinzia, Sharon, Neil, Metod,
Item 1: THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL
To discuss: FEEDBACK on How To PARTICIPATION IN FIVE YEARS' THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL
General feeling is that it was very interesting to participate, although appart from CP members, only one public and the organiser showed up to speed-tip at How To.
The tipping format worked very well, really very well.
Sharon made a series of tipping prompts - these will be posted on the wiki soon.
There is a general feeling that the speed-tipping format could be repurposed for other themes and events.
The question of who is this resource for (the tips), and time to assimulate what had happened after the event, were things in retrospect, that seemed to be missing. Something to look out for next time. The topics were very broad, and maybe this made the discussions inconclusive, the resource (tips).........was never really produced.
Although, we have developed another tool for our toolbox!
This is very positive outcome. And it was fun!!
Metod suggests we start a toolbox page to capture all the creative formats we have developed for knowledge production.
Item 2; BERLIN BIENNALE
To discuss:ANY NEWS ON THE BB
The main working group members were unfortunately missing, but the lack of response from the BB make us think our The Market of Values - Proposalis not happening.
We are not optimistic. Although something might happen........?
Item 3; WALK and TALK
To discuss: Feedback on the Frieze Art Fair Walk and Talk
Scott and Sharon met beforehand to plan; energies was a theme, calories, attention, etc
Inside the Frieze Art Fair they walked, looked, talked, they used pedometers, gps and smartmaps, smartphone apps, took photos and expended energy for 2hours.
Sharon burnt (only) 40.37 calories. Scott twice as much? There are suspicions over the accuracy of the data. What kinds of energies were expended is an interesting topic, and we discuss how to take it further as a project. Next year go wired and monitored. Frieze as gym.
Sharon will mail material on Frieze gym
We moved to any other business to leave more time for the wikiskillsharing section.
Item 5: ANY OTHER BUSINESS
