Final feedback of key ideas from working parties followed by the final summation and where to from here by Ann and Peter
join us on hangout for the final session https://hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_/darwincommunityarts.org.au/closingceremony
Great point Alex, thanks for the the point
(no need to read out just wanted to archive this comment in the mix) I hope that we don’t feel we need to completely reinvent the wheel with this process. There is so much work that has been done by social movements around intersectionality, building power, working agreements, values, networks, organising, mobilising, advocacy etc - much to learn from indigenous activists, unions, social movements ETC that we can bring to Arts Front. I do however think we can “recreate” the wheel and bring our creativity to our network and movement and do incredibly dynamic things! Much love and solidarity to you all.
have opened the hangout and will take it outside for the closure
Great pleasure Alex - thanks so much for your persistence in joining
Being able to still participate and listen even while needing to be home today has been wonderful. Thanks!
Thanks for all your support to enable participation online Scotia & AF team!

Hi Guys I can open a Hangout so that we can share the closing
Welcome back everyone
Time to grab that cup of tea!
We are having a short break but we are not going away....
Alex Kelly, Tara Prowse, Bec Cole, Cecelia Cmielewski, Avril Duck - you are present from your text.... anyone else?
I think love should be a guiding principle of Arts Front. We sometimes avoid this word I think - frightened we will be dismissed as being too soft or weak somehow. Grateful to the last speaker for voicing love and bringing this value and warmth to the room. <3
To you too Bec, thanks for joining
Online hugs were lovely. Thank you!
thanks Alex... and back
Sarah is giving you a hug...
we can have an online hug!!!!

I’ll take responsibility for overthrowing the patriarchy - no biggie!
Yes Avril - attempting to find people with interest to aim to pick up the actions, otherwise there is no moving forward
People participated in groups - ideas forward, it seems a little tough to make people put their names on it.
We are looking at the session pages - working group 3
