    Hey All!
    I would like to firstly say thank you very much for turning up to our StreetForm and CAaD meeting today, and having an interest in what we are doing. I was definately impressed with the interest from the 1st years. I hope that you stick with us, and encourage more of your friends to join up!
    This is the current email address list that I have got. You should group save it so we can have the possibility of having some sort of dialogue platform.
    For our new members please join our Facebook group at:
    This way, we can keep intouch easier since most people check their Facebook more than email.
    Also we have a blog which is:

    StreetForms next school is one in Denerby but the date isn’t set. They were interested in the end of October though and specifically Graffiti Techniques.
    We are hoping for some fresh ideas, and people, and polishing up of last years workshops so if you have some ideas (can be anything!) bringgg it!
    When the date is set we will set up a session to go through our workshop so you’re familiar with it.
    We also rotate role allocation. So for example, James, shivvers, Nat and myself did the last school. So the next school will be different people (only if you want to do it – we never force anyone to do so).
    We are filling for funding, sometime within the next few weeks.
    Next meeting schedual for 9TH OCTOBER at 1:00pm at room 2009 Harmer, CITY CAMPUS.  That’s a Thursday. Please tell me if this is problem for you, espeically time-table wise.
    * In the next meeting we will establish role allocation for the ARTS FESTIVAL.
    * Brendan will email us all his text of the “Accumlation of Culture” which is the theme that we are rocking with. Please read it, so we can open the platform for ideas, new stratgies and such. Don’t be intimidated. this is a safe group where every idea counts!
    * A discussion of spaces, we have the potential of 2 so far.
    * Funding ideas
    * Time allocation so it doesnt disrupt dissertations + practice
    * People to get intouch with.
