Surely it would not take long to discuss front of house issues during the Visual Art meetings?
You'd be suprised lol
I can understand the reasoning for suggesting this. I guess it is important that Kata and FOH decisions have a meeting to come to and if FOH isn't sustainable as a group then it should probably be VA. Also there may be something problematic about the VA WG just being the TK WG, becasue then it is not really a working group and more of just an independant group akin to Forest Publishing, Records or Old Hat Books for example
Originally the groups were split because some of those who were keen on FOH didn't want to have to listen to gallery chat and vice versa.
It wasn't intended to be a seperate WG and i'm not sure at what point that happened. The idea of a seperate group was to identify who was keen to address FOH issues and give those people a degree of autonomy to make decisions about it, rather than always having to stick it on the bb, suffer endless discussions about what colour etc.
one solution would be to consider dealing with any FOH issues at the beginning of the VA meeting, allowing those not interested in gallery chat to leave when the relevant stuff had been covered.
