/////////////////////////////////////////////

Notes from meeting on May 30:

* Erika is working on Taku’s visa application as high priority - STEIM would like Taku to continue his role as artistic director next year.
* Atau would like to continue in 2008 - Michel proposes that this will happen on project base.
* Taku’s work will overlap with Robert’s work - we need to talk about this before the summer - Robert will organize a meeting.
* List of issues to talk about later - Robert will plan a meeting:
* next year artdirect Tarek & Tina Blaine
* workshop - hardware interns / try some people on project basis (like Sukandar) / fresh person to manage / no longterm R&D anymore
* Taku interested in R&D himself, and some coordination of the workshop / Jamboree at the end of 2007
* Orientation workshop re-vamp - more regular / Frank & Taku more involved / possibly also Daniel & Jorgen
* Bilgi workshop for Turkish students - is Jorgen involved
* Jamboree planning - also with Daniel’s use of Mackies and guesthouse
* Japan connection:
* feb 5 - march 9
* the plan is a LiSa/junXion workshop with Frank & Robert, and a concert with Michel, Taku and Robert - also working with students
* there is funding for the local travel, lodging & fee
* funding is based upon the fact that steim is coming, so they have to do something
* we need to check for travel costs - Erika? Gaudeamus?
* Robert will organize a staf meeting
* Exhibition at Energetica in the museum weekend - our exhibition doesn’t really fit there - so not for now
* Gaudeamus muziekweek 2007 / Gaudeamus would like to have a fringe program at steim - Robert will contact Henk and setup meeting with Taku / Robert
* Croatia -Rijeka - july / festival artistic group Palach / exhibition & concert by Taku, Robert & Keir Neuringer - this seems unlikely to happen - Robert will check with Erika.
