Tim's points

Is 'sustainabilty of creativity' more about how to preserve it at this moment in time than in the environmental sense of sustainability - making sure we do not compromise the future by our actions in the present.

My feeling is it should be both. And in fact, they may be nested. If the future is to exist, we need to to more than merely preserve the present. And also, we might want to nourish the future, not merely ensure there is one...... In this sense creative practice is an investment in the future.

what is 'it' and who is 'we'? Specifically CP's? If CP, is that sufficient for the aims of the residency, and for CP?

Could CP be one of the case studies? Or, the case study? I still think that something that Cinzia initiated at the Disclosures Bar-Camp, the idea of an audit of all the incomes and expenditures that makes a creative engagement possible would be a fascinating project, or part of a project. There might be some relevant thoughts here on Creative Labour at wintercamp

creativity is an inalienable part of each person - with huge consequences for how 'work' and 'leisure' exist in our society and would be about creating a sustainable future for everyone.

might be too much to take on all at once

Maybe looking at how people see creativity existing in their lives

Build on HUB case studies

Mike's points
'Discursive and recursive' - project as sustainable system or permaculture environment for the duration of the residency. A time-bound ecology based on human interaction - knowledge, value, effort, creative endeavour. Dissolution should be sensitive to the ecologies around it. Consider margins of error.

Creative endeavour important to wellbeing (individual, communal, universal?). Implicitly or explicitly explore this.

Significance of 'burnout' - when one gives too much to a project for the love of it without due recompense (of various types).

It might be useful to stop thinking about the economy of creativity in classical economic terms, and what this might mean. Perhaps potential to abstract some of the NEF research.

Game of Life (Conway) as a model - there are margins through which agents can sustain themselves, and that it is a system that constantly evolves and apparently never dies out. Gameplay as potential heuristic devices to engage audience/participants/collaborators.
