Topics: Makers Survey review, Network and means of Networking.
The first Focus Group Meeting took place on 4 December 2019, shortly after the Open BAU Meeting at Veemvloer when the results of Survey #1 were shared. All Focus Group members were present. The meeting began with a brief discussion about the survey and some of the surprising results.
This was followed by a series of introductory questions for the Focus Group members regarding their function in the network (Amsterdam independent scene), what forms of media they utilise to engage with the field, and how they make contact with other makers, new work, programmers, etc.
A more in-depth discussion followed about their personal professional experience with their network, the further development of their network and their networking mechanisms. And how a new agency could possibily facilitate new networking and exchange capacities and processes.
