ideally for me we could meet sometime before friday. anybody got a preference?

i think the food idea sounds good, its gopod to have an artistic slant on proceedsings since we will be in the gallery, like dai mentioned in the other thread.

I also take dai's point about the fragile ecology of skips- could we do a few trips in the runup to december and store the choice stuff somewhere till the fun begins on the 15th?

the more we can get done before the start of december the better for me really cos i will be out of the country after that until the start of the show.

i'm planning to do a few collage editions with the marks n spencer hamper brochure, aiming to knock a couple out to promote the show soon.


logistically speaking, things we need are:

a way of displaying the free stuff
enough free stuff
a plan for promotions
signage

s far as slogans and such i like the term "karmic retail" Martin and iu were discussing a while back about the word "free" being bopth necessary but misleading- might be good to emphasise the bringing as well as the taking.

There's a book launch at stills I wanted to go to (History of Scottish photography, the guys giving a little talk) so I can't make then. Earlier or later?

"TKXMAXX- a merry celebration of Christmas culture-the festive incarnation of the Forest free shop! That’s right! new and improved! Now with 100% more gallery!
This festive art occurrence will provide an alternative to the Christmas shopping experience by adopting and subverting the aesthetics and principles of the retail trade.
Its buy none get one free! TKXMAXX will be one part investigation into the dark side of the horn of plenty, one part space for found objects and artists editions- all available for a one-time-only special price of nothing! Every priceless item in the shop will be on sale for free!
TKXMAXX revolves around the tenet of “karmic retail”- take what you want and leave what you can- this is a participation event so if you want to donate your unwanted stuff or use your skills in the space to make new artist’s editions from found objects just drop by or get in touch with the visual arts working group through our email- totalkunstsubmissions@yahoo.co.uk"


i liked dai's idea about the staff shirts.

what about putting that bit of the slade song where noddy shouts "it's christ-maaaas" slowed down and on a constant loop? sanity-shattering!

Free Free Shop STUFF....

Postby ravanwin » Mon Dec 17, 2007 7:18 pm

---- DOES ANYONE HAVE A VAN AND WANNA GET THIS STUFF ---

Hello Ryan -

Don't know if you're the right person to ask abut this, but since most of my FB Forest messages have come from you I figured you'd be a good place to start.

I have a vanload (or possibly 2 carloads) of stock for the free shop (mostly clothes/costumes and also a large bag of fabric rags for craft projects and some assorted bits & pieces of junk). I don't have transport, however, or know of anyone who has.

So if the Forest would like this stuff, could someone get in touch with me to arrange pickup? I'm in Tollcross and my number is 07941 144884. Ideally I'm hoping whoever is picking the stuff up could do so after 10pm one evening this week as I work until that time and also it's less hassle to park.

Could you also let me know if you don't want the stuff as in that case I will offer it to a charity shop.

cheers

Woody
