Education Commission Business Meeting-1

June 15th Thursday, 9:00- 12:00

Dorita Hannah noted that it is important to guarantee that online registration will work accurately, and students will not be disappointed by mistakes and omissions, when coming to Prague.
Michael Ramsaur explained that in comparison to Scenofest ’03, the application procedure for Scenofest’07 is longer and more complex. Marina underlined that the process of registration will go through several stages and will involve longer and closer communication between the organizers and the applicants. Marina committed to forward to Sean Crowley and Chris van Goethem all recommendations concerning registration and application forms.
Dorita Hannah and Andrew Bretelle intend to bring to Scenofest a performance that includes use of new media, but insurance and transport costs for the technical equipments are significant and they can not cover them. A discussion concerning ways to solve insurance expenses followed and concluded with a suggestion that all participants will share all equipments that they will bring to Scenofest. Scenofest organizers should take care of the preliminary coordination on this.

Petr Matasek noted that all Scenofest costs should be clarified by October in order to have realistic budget. Marina said that Babel Tower and Scenofest stage costs need to be decided as soon as possible. Dorita Hannah proposed to use unsustainable and recycled materials for the Scenofest Stage and Babel Tower.


The meeting was adjourned at 12 am.
