Hey up John n peeps,
(I've included the ssf list in this e-mail: note John's e-mail below re
the planned arrival of CIRCA in Sheffield. Everyone cool with this?
Let's discuss next Thursday - for which we don't yet have a venue!)
Well: Peace in the Park is now moving!
But: - it's looking MOST likely that Sheffield Social Forum and others
will be organising the following in the week leading up to the G8
Justice ministers arriving, i.e. shall we say 9th to the 18th....
1. Convergence centre (which will need to have space for training, so
hopefully wherever we end up with will suit your purposes John.)
2. G8 Call out to get others to Sheffield - a little warm-up before the
3. Some kind of counter-conference event during the actual G8 days
4. A street event also
We don't know where the ministers are going to be, and I'm suggesting we
plan whatever we do so that it doesn't matter.
John: how do these changed plans fit in with your vision of things?
If it's all OK, we'll start sorting things like getting permissions for
the town centre...
1) We arrive in sheff on thursday and do street interventions in town
Friday day and that evening do the caravan show ( its no longer a big
top !!- but an exploding caravan) in a public space - a shopping precint
or somthing similar - ( we would need you lot to suggest a suitable
venue and help us get permissions etc)
2) Trainings - as its a 2 day intensive for 30 participants - its not
really suitable to do it in a tent during a festival where people come
and go - so i suggest we find a church hall/community centre /social
centre etc .. and book it for the 2 days (Sat/SUn) ( a kind of NVDA
annnex to the festival perhaps ??)
3) then on sat eve we do the second caravan show in the park at the
festival in the eve...
does that make sense??
would be great to hear asap as we are juggling like crazy and need to
get publicity out asap..
hope you are all well

The true meaning of life is to plant trees,
under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
