WORKING-GROUPS (UPDATED 31 July 2020)
In the days prior to the September 1 launch date, working-groups are formed and sequenced.
The default method for arranging these groups is this: I compose them according to my own druthers. My aim is to facilitate valuable individual and collective experiences by assembling effective, amicable groups. If you’re happy with this method, and would like to be assigned to a group, consider this: The more I know about you, the more nuanced your group placement will be. If you have preferences, interests, or concerns regarding group placement, please let me know. [firstname.lastname@example.org]
GROUPS MAY BE SELF-ORGANIZED
If anyone would like to recruit collaborators and organize a group (or portion of a group) without my input, you are invited to do so. Potential collaborators should read and understand the Project Description, Notes, and Schedule. All participants should register with me, so their names can be added to the Collaborator List, and so they can be included in project-wide email updates and messages.
Other considerations when recruiting collaborators and assembling groups:
- Each working-group will consist of five collaborators. (It is permissible for “one collaborator” to be a couple, a family, or whatever collective arrangement which might be made).
- When a group is assembled, a sequence must be set, and each collaborator will need to provide a mailing address to their fellow collaborator who precedes them in that sequence.
- Collaborators are strongly encouraged to communicate with fellow working-group members regarding progress and delays. Simple messages such as, “… collage sent today…” or “…collage received…” can be very helpful in scheduling and keeping the project on track.
As always, I am eager to answer any questions, or address any concerns.
Marty McCutcheon, Project Coordinator
