Yuri states his proposal for having a craft fair in the park starting early spring and recurring (but not yet determined how often). Would like it to be a family friendly event, have teaching of crafts and include many types of art and craft and other participants like music. Above all just have a really fun day in the park. POI, David thinks that there is already someone who is working on something similar. CQ, when do you want to have the first one. A. possibly end of Feb, this is only the second working group I have contacted, going to contact many more to help get it organized. CQ How is it going to be funded? A through the WGs and the GA. CQ will you try to work with WGs that are planning similar events or work around them. A that is to be determined by the WG. Main goals, to be family friendly, keeping it clean (no profanity ect.), make it affordable, help make the movement sustainable. Proposed hours of craft fair, on a Sat from 10am to 3pm. POI Jeanie, (just joined group meeting), there are tables at 33rd and 2ave farmers market that are free for occupiers to sell their crafts POI, can’t “sell” under the name “occupy wall street”. says proper wording would be, suggested donation.
