Item 1: Evaluation, Consensus and Location Reflections?

To discuss: What worked; what didn't - other thoughts and reflections. Report back on the publication.

Had aspects like a conference. Take down worked well. It was cathartic. It's interesting that Kioka approached Marsha for a fashion awareness event to borrow some of the twine used. Utopoly went ok/great. It offered a long time to engage in conversation and to struggle with the issues. Not everyone was comfortable with the conference style aspects. Liked Jill's presentation, but there wasn't space to get down to the nitty gritty. Valued respecting the timetable. Starting late means the organisers have to take the hit. This was too small for either a workshop track or a conference track. Though people knew it wasn't a conference, upon arrival it was hard to get outside of the conference mindset. Critical Practice was well organised- we're well practiced at working together. Initially it was confusing what position Critical Practice was taking within the entire event. We have tacit knowledge, we know how to work together. A declaration of practice could be helpful. People who don't know our language perhaps didn't know how to intervene. We have shortcuts of communication that makes it hard for others to come in. We can meet and discuss for entire meetings, but when things need to happen we just do them. Restate aims and objectives as declaration of practice that we can give people to show how we can work with others. We weren't the facilitators, but sometimes there was a question as to whether we were. Was it a CP event? This will alter the publication. We were co-producers, producing separate events. There were long email discussions about food, rather than scheduling. It was an amazing event, the aftershock was happy. Amy Butt's construction solution was really impressive. Do we want to pursue Utopoly? Yes. Critical Practice and whoever else is interested should reinvent the game working off of the ideas from the day. Only one of the groups wasn't energetic. We should design the game before next year's event. Action: put game design date in diary.

Publication: timing is a little delayed. Format is there. Some texts have been sent. Publication has 8-9 cards. Action: Metod will let group know which presenters are not yet represented in the cards. A2 of the scribings. Wiki has images and descriptions of the workshops, if they will be in the publication, too. Neil suggests tack like Parade- post-producing the event. Action: Neil to put forward any money left in his prof budget towards publication. To capture the event it would be good to approach the publication like Parade. It's to all of our benefit if it's amazing. Now that it's a CP event this changes the publication. Action: send write-up for introduction. (use quote on wiki).

Item 2: Stephen Wright's workshop on usership, 20th June

To discuss: There was the possibility of doing this workshop on one of the boats in Chris Wainwright's flotilla. But would this dilute the focus? Would it perhaps make more sense for us to do run the workshop on dry land? Is there interest in combining this with a book launch and screening related to Stephen's little publication for AND?

Date confirmed. Should we do the workshop on one of Chris Wainwright's boats? There is a screening that night. Stephen is having a book on poaching launched with films about it that night by And. The boat could be better saved for the picnic. How should we use Stephen? This is about usership. Can we give him a direction for a workshop? Something about opportunism? Ask him about usership of moving image? Action: ask Stephen to do an all day event about usership. Offer to do the screening in the Green Room at Chelsea. Neil to touch base with And. Marsha to book Green Room for the whole day. Listening for his approach to ethics.

Item 3: Evaluation Screenings Season

To discuss: Where are we in Evaluation Screenings process? General reflections on the AIR screening. Amy to report on her and Catherine's work for upcoming ones; Marsha to report on how things are developing with Basia.

Action: set up wiki page to come up with a name for the screenings. First one 24 May (Sat) at Bread and Roses, 5:30-8:30pm. Pub named after textile workers strike in Massachusetts. Screening there The Women of Brukman (2007). Banners (textiles) and applique- workshop talking about values at the beginning, and people make banners during the screening. Possibly learn cross-stitch? Could there be a second session to get all the activity in? Is there any food there? Action: Amy to check and see if we can bring pot luck. Should the second part be formalised? Second screening: cycling cinemas. Cycle from Chelsea to CSM. 24/25th June. Outside space for a screening of Ladri di Biciclette (1948). DAC revolutionised how bikes are secured. Inverted Auction of Tournament of Evaluation? How to make it into a game? Generators attached to bikes to power the projectors. Teams seeing value shout it out and then swap cyclists to gain points. Chart of value and values as the film goes on.
