* Drafted a vision statement for the representative group; key aspects of the vision were expressed at the first meeting, ie:
-Forming a unified arts policy across the region that ensures the arts sector in its diversity of groups, practices and interests is actively represented.

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.
