We are trying to be sensitive to governance.
Governance emerges whenever there is a deliberate organization of interactions between people.
Whenever people form a community, group, centre, cluster or institution – from a loose collection of friends to a public museum - and deliberately organize their interactions, issues of governance follow.
It’s clear that Free Libre and Open Source (FLOSS) inspired organizational structures – open, transparent, broadly consensual, and self-managing -offer new models for thinking about issues of accountability and governance - particularly in the public sector, cultural organizations, or those in reciept of public funds.
The logic of governance is essentially functional: it is a series of processes that people must continuously carry out for the institution or community to create and replicate itself. Governance refers to a dynamic, rather than a static, system. ‘Open Organizations’ vividly embody this dynamic, they are frequently modeled as self-organizing systems where governance ‘emerges’ from open interaction and exchange.
We are striving to be an open organization, and to make all decisions, processes and production, open and public.
We will post agendas, minutes, points of action, budget and decision making processes on line for public scrutiny; as advised by open-organizations
