Choosing the collaborative model

from Michel van der Aa

Dear friends,
Sorry to not have jumped in sooner but I was away for a bit.
I agree, the first thing we need to do is choose what kind of collaborative model we want to use. I don't think its a good idea to invite 50 more directors as Anne suggested. I would almost say the opposite, to make the group smaller rather than larger. It will be impossible to come to any sort of decision with 70 members.

During our Cooper Square meeting it became clear that everyone wants slightly different things. Maybe its a good idea to compare the list we made during that meeting and see where our interests overlap and take it from there? (Doug?) If I remember well there were two basic interests; some people wanted a very practical collaborative structure, to start an international theatre group and the other group was more interested in sharing the process of making theatre and to have a private bouncing board for idea's and practical work related problems.

Hope you are all well, love from Amsterdam
x Michel

Oops yes, I actually think the 'COMMUNITY - EXCHANGE - COLLABORATION' title sums it up nicely.
