Is there someone we’d like to write this?

PART 1: Introduction: (perhaps done in time for Market - so that’s what we hand out) MARSHA
Deadline Mid June (10th - 15) in time for Metod to design. MARSHA to complete with list of contributors

• Marsha’s proposal: Survey of CP’s practice on the occasion of its anniversary - tracing treads over the course of the last decade that have informed the market: ‘value and evaluation’ grows out of previous work on ‘being in public,’ ‘open source beyond software’ and ‘critical/creative forms of self-organisation’.

PART 2: Contextualising #TransActing: AMY
Deadline Sept 1st in time for Metod to design. ALL to agree on who to commission for this

• Beyond CP’s practice via a series of five or so commissioned texts. Short on word count but big in insight, they could explore interconnected issues that have been identified by the PWG: the histories of markets and other structures of exchange; generosity, trust, reciprocity and additional social values; a cross-cultural glossary of evaluation; trends in arts funding and its consequences for cultural production, etc.

PART 3: Producing the Market (recalls a similar section in the PARADE publication) CINZIA??
Deadline End of July in time for Metod to design.

• A narrative of becoming told across archival artefacts: emails from CP’s mailing lists, (some) meeting agendas and minutes, planning documents, photographs/reflections of leadup events, etc. Perhaps a timeline identifying key turning points… Emphasis on tracing CP’s decision-making processes and contingencies that informed them, in keeping with CP’s commitment to transparency and accountability and interest in the conditions of our own possibility.

PART 4: Market as an event - 11 July 2015 METOD AND AMY (MAP) MARSHA (stall contributions - 300 words and an image?)
Deadline Mid June for map. End of July for stall contributions in time for Metod to design.

• The fourth section will focus on the Market as a time-space. We’ve talked about a a pullout map providing a bird’s eye view of the stalls’ configuration on the day. Should stalls also have a page each, as in the case of PARADE? - It would be good to take this decision in advance so that we can frontload the process .

PART 5: Rather than a conclusion, a ‘how-to create your own market’ (perhaps get this ready of 30th September) METOD
Deadline End of August in time for Metod to design before mid Sept drinks launch, working with Stalls working group

• Rough instructions and hard-won insights to encourage others in realising their own market--of values, ideas or some other concern. This could also foreground the market as a new--or at least underexploited--genre…
