Present: Simone, Emi, Martin, Stephen, Miria, Charly, Melanie, Rolph
Apologies: Matthes

Gallery:

Problems with jugglers and workshops using the space and people damaging the art- Difficult to police and/or change the feeling of the space- having more footfall is a boon and a curse- we should make it more explicit to artists the unique qualities of the space. Difficult to effect change of the space... difficult to think of ideas to improve, discourage intrusive use of gallery.

AP- Emi to talk to spanish workshop.

Put locks on Gallery cupboards?- locks with keys are well out but maybe combination locks would be good- some storage space artists can use- but, artists leave stuff indefinitely.


Festival:

Martin met with EAF in regards to the sunmissions schedule for this year-

deadlines-

2nd Dec: submissions form sent out
2nd March: Proposal submission

dates of EAF: 30/06/2009- 06/09/2009

should start thinking of themes, ideas and formats for this. Perhaps have a full meeting for it in future. Also Annualle to consider.


ECA: TK at ECA volunteer fair- good oppertunity to get in touch with ECA students.- 4th Nov


Submissions:

Simon Green- Martin
Nick Chate- Mike
Sarah Tingle- Simone
Jack Webb (1 or 2 days)- Emi
David Mueller- Stephen
Plastic bag project- Emi

Follow up- Marmot- Mike
Daneil Young- Stephen.

Everybody to contact artists to see who can fill the empty spaces which are coming up.

I saw Jack Webb 3 or 4 days ago (can't remember exactly) and he said he hadn't heard back from anyone and it had been a week or something and what was happening? can there be a policy of just sending a "thanks for your submission, we'll let you know" email so ppl know whats happening?

ps. And on a personal note, he did a show for us at fringe 2007 and it was brilliant. He vollied with the theater lots to. Good guy.

looks liek you can set up a holiday response for a set time but it looks like it would be more trouble than its worth.

i suspect the more people with acces to email will create more problems . it may be better to forward the emails to their respective agents . i understand this more work for the email person/s . it could be that whoever does the email job . only does this job , rather than dealing wiht the shows too.

other thing that springs to mind thinking about this . we booked a lot of shows last time . wiht some people taking on a lot . it may they shold be a limit to what we do in relation to how many people we have .

we also have start getting the info on the shows on bb . so we can get this on the web page and mailing list . also important is getting when the closing partys info .

good idea about forwarding e mails, most people seem to check the tk account but i shall forward them on.

i would hate to only e mail and not do meeting artists as that is fun bit!! however i would be up for someone taking over e mail sometime soon , she smiles

the meeting in december falls on xmas day so shall we bring it forward to the week before (18th), we need to book action room in the new action room book if anyone remembers next time they are in cafe.

date for next action day: sunday november 30th st andrew's day, good excuse for pub trip after! can people make this date?

think this is all i have to say on matter
