Project Narrative for #TransActing in publication - this will be an abbreviated version of the one we had in PARADE - ideally about 15 entries - we're looking at a section of about 16 pages. Image suggestions would be excellent. Turning points, etc.

NB: Could we get something in here about the currency? Maybe when it's pitched and/or takes shape?

January 2011: Kuba and Marsha meet with Artur Zmijewski to discuss the possibility of Critical Practice featuring in the Berlin Biennial, which will look at the "What is the use/effect of art?" - review Berlin wire to determine what happens here...

July 2012: Market of Values proposal - Dortmund - project failed because...Chelsea couldn’t get the letter of support sorted - ask Kuba and Metod to weigh in on this to be sure it’s correct (Format: wiki image/blurb) October 2012: Post-doc fellowship in Critical Practice is advertised...this will mean there is someone who is being paid to research in and writing funding applications for Critical Practice - the post starts on 28 May 2012 and runs for two years. (Format: Suggestions? Maybe just a paragraph for this - could connect to SSW.)

October 2014: Market of Values Working Group – discuss diversity of market stalls to include Auction, Speculation & Gambling stalls. For this to work market goers would need a Currency to transact with for wealth to fluctuate & provide a level of jeopardy.

March 2015: We get the ACE money - Marsha and Kuba write the application over Christmas holidays - feels like a longshot but we pull it off. We have funding + the money from CCW - amazing part of it - in-kind support from RHP - something like 10k/day - (Format: include letter of agreement - ACE - scanned, assuming they are okay with this)

June 2015: Open call closes 1 June - amazing meeting when select who will benefit from 1000 funding - Stall workshops - 2nd/18th June - building our collaboration with public works... Aha moment - Enzo Mari OS modular furniture design. (Format: we have lots of great images from these events).

July 2015: 1 July Commencement of build - Upcycling degree show - Amy's food; trouble in paradise - Marsha throws a fit and there are two different invites

11 July 2015: Market Day

August 2015 - distribution of stalls - some stay on the RHP and others go to 'good homes'

Acknowledge Intellect application and publication...a long time in coming...
