1. Mission Statement
Words such as 'accessible' 'free space' 'contemporary' 'artist run' 'not for profit' were bandyed about. 'intelligent art' was sneered at. Jessie suggested looking at other gallery's statements.
Action:discussion will be continued on the BB (here)
Next exhibition is on the 10th of February.
Gallery needs tidy up before then.

Fitting in another exhibition: people will have proposals ready by Wednesday 24th
we need a comprehensive list of people to e-mail about things happening in the space and information about when to contact newspapers etc.
action: Alice and Jessie will compile something
Security camera needs to be scary. Alice suggested putting doors on the gallery. People thought this may restrict accessability but also that it could then be up to the artist when to close those doors and gives the possability that the space could be invidulated.
action: Alice will mention it to Forest Working Group and report back
5. Expanding the group
