Vermeir & Heiremans Ronny has been taking care of his father. His health goes better. working on gathering participants for the walks in SPA -MR made a proposal for a basic income for artists. Katleen: it's a kind of trap, need to prove 156 days of work. Too conditional. Co-created by same people as those who proposed adaptations to the present artist's statute - Servaes Lecompte & Johan Van As (theatre). Generally met with positive response, 1500/month. But who reads more critically... Katleen wrote analysis, perhaps leading official statement with SOTA. Oko is also involved. There is access to the right people (Cabinet Vandenbroucke, Social Affairs). Meeting with oKo is scheduled on Wednesday.
Bruges Triennale: trying to set up a public moment in September. Writing resolution for access to art for everyone - public moment to discuss this.
Grace was selected for Development Programme working period at Kunsthal Gent. To research 'property' in the context of Caermersklooster (masterplan will be presented this summer). They proposed early 2022 - Grace proposed April-June 2021 to meet locals and discuss, as well as a later period of a more public nature. Julie will have a meeting with her to discuss possible Emptor collaboration.
Communication of the reading rooms: discussion with OSP - with Jeanne around, she could work on a basis from OSP. Jesse follows up with Gijs. Posters & Mapping tool to be discussed with OSP! Katya Ev has performances of 'visitors....' coming up on saturdays this and the following month. The publication of HISK catalogue took place on Saturday. 5 February...Reading Room with Katya: Invite Steyn? Get Katya's Arena sample book for in Caveat library Reading Rooms will have to be online? what are the protocols for physical meetings today? we schedule a meeting about this early next week with Katya, Jeanne, Jesse, Julie.
A Fair New Idea Kunstenpunt funding. https://afairnewidea.be/en/thema-1 Could be interesting for both Emptor and Tracks. Only needs 1x A4 application. 12000 euros. Project has to start in June 2021 at the latest. SOTA (Kobe) is already applying with a program on the artist status. The budget is limited and they throw your idea in the open even if you don't get the funding. Synopsis of EMPTOR proposal? Use Bovenlokaal (news April, would start July) as point of departure? Ronny & Julie discuss this afternoon. 12.000 is limited, but this call could be a way to involve Kunstenpunt itself. "Do it together" was a one-off call, not really followed-up on/
Vincent Meessen Finalizing budget JUM for VAF, Ronny in collaboration with Genevieve.

BMB con was invited by Soundtrackcity to create a walking piece in the park...a listening excercise rather than an audio work. Made a cassette, waiting for them to arrive from UK.

Artist's fee for collectively running Jubilee Was possible at the end of 2020 thanks to VIA subsidy that turned out to be much higher than expected. Amount of VIA is on basis of amount of employees in the previous year. So for 2021 we will receive less.
