Summary from today’s call
Venue: confirmed that we will be using the Smart.be venue. They need from us:
List of technical equipment needed
For Creative industries track: breakdown of all ways they can engage with the event and help make it a generative experience for everyone involved.
On friday they are running a big party for admin to which we are invited. Nice occasion to see how space works for 120 people, as well as to meet the admin/decision makers in the organisation and introduce edgeryders, Starts art 19:30.
They also want to run an event in
Mollenbeek Molenbeek on the history of Italian immigration to Belgium. Relevant to @Anton_Sabbe’s work: perhaps we can host a discussion with people who remember, kids of immigrants and grassroots orgs. As well as people currently in asylum seeking process. Possible for KBC to finance food/drinks and documentation of the event as part of the research/consultation process?
Onboarding new participants/signups:
- Step 1: Get them to post hello and personal introduction in arrivals to make it easier for people with complementary interests and relveant knowledge to connect with them
- Who can take responsibility for going through list of newcomers, welcoming them and helping them to get over the newcomer threshhold?
