To bring you up to speed, here is the update since the first meeting:
Artists Alliance and Creative People's Centre have met, and from the feedback at the first meeting have achieved the following:
* Identified the need to form a small group that is able (able = having time, commitment, focus, local and/or regional relationships and the up-to-date information) to represent to the ATA and other decision-making bodies local and regional issues faced by the arts sector in the transition to a Super City
Drafted a vision statement for the representative group; key
aspects of the vision were expressed at the first meeting,
-Forming a unified arts policy across the region that ensures the arts sector in its diversity of groups, practices and interests is actively represented.
-Acting as a conduit between arts sector and the decision makers. Seek direction from those attending the meeting as to the role of the arts in the super city? What is the vision?
The purpose of the the November 10th meeting is:
* Seek a mandate from attending representatives of the arts sector to form a representative group and present suggested names for the group.
* Seek ideas from those attending the meeting as to how the group might best achieve the goal of representing issues to decision makers.
* To have present MPs and other key decision makers directly involved in the super city process. They will be asked to address issues and concerns expressed by those who attended the initial meeting.
