At event 3 the idea of a ‘Charter of Questions’ was popular among the group. This would be accessible to Artists and Organisations in the network, and may be a signifier on a website that they have signed up to principles and aims of operating within the Rural. This was seen as a way to create transparency to the sorts of things that link us, but also give space for difference. The charter would exist as a regular check in activity, and would also be a form of implicit advocacy: a useful tool for funders/policy makers.
Building the Charter of Questions
The Charter of Questions will be developed collaboratively by the network using a shared online document, with the aim to solidify suggested questions at Event 4.
