- Dorian wrote up a page, sounds great
- Loss & Damage
- bring up exactly how much to split percentage—
- standard for real gallery is 50% but they do SO much we’re not gonna do that much
- 30% percent acceptable for our level of split, maybe 25? Negotiate?
- can negotiate? Get 50 if people wanna donate?
- Set a low barrier? But could people come to us and pitch? Lets be the connect for HSU

+++++Application Process for Artists
- something to hand to artists like at HSU- how can market ourselves as a venue for them to show at -- Flyer with Alex V image / contact info on back.

++++++Feb Arts Arcata:

Mali Email: Answering the questions in Mali's Email from the day before.

16ft x 5ft is the display space. Can include how ever many works would fit- the best spaces are three bigger panels,
Can put art up at the Thursday meeting
It can be up until- Saturday March 3rd -What time come pick up?
Closing reception? Get more people out to see?

Music: come play! but musicians won’t get paid.
Snacks on the artist? Don’t have a budget for it. But make it if ya want it!
Bring their own title cards: for sale info on it!
Frame own stuff- make artists statement??

++++++ Lumio- everyone in this email list was sent an invitation to join the loomio group via email.


Nick’s idea: gallery facilitators- How can we as OS peeps facilitate others’ art shows here, and and allow other people to curate it?
- like the HSU students (Mali, Zoe, Taylor) showing in April.

What are the jobs we need to create as facilitators so other people are able to do the jobs in the future by following documentation which we create?

What do we need to do here to make that possible?
- Open the doors ever Arts Arcata
- Tell them what space they can actually use
- We tell them what kind of display stuff we have- we need to know that stuff is -- GET LIST FROM INK PPL
- When can they put their art up
- can they have more than just that wall
- how can we press release and promote
- Can we be available for them to pick up their art- how long after show
- spell it all out in a contract for them to follow
- bring stuff that’s ready to hang
- how can we handle sales
- email on title card to sell yourself?
- featured artists booked as many months out as possible
