You are invited to a meeting about the new Bowes Park and Bounds Green Community Website on September 13th 128 Myddleton Road - 7:30pm until 9:00pm
Following the very productive first meeting about the development of a community network site for Bowes Park & Bounds Green good progress has been made - A URL (web address) has been registered and the prototype sites - including this one - have been tested.
At the meeting on the 13th there a few things to talk about:
1 The way the project is organised
- setting up a structure and status which enables us to, for example, open a bank account, pay bills and collect donations. This means adopting a simple "constitution".2 Content and scope of site
it would be great to have a discussion about what sort of content people would like to see on the site and what material people can contribute. Photography, poetry, music, local history etc... Discussion could include for example establishing groups within the site for specific local activities each "curated" by different individuals.2 Identity
- establishing a logo, visual identity and brand that
represents the network. One of our neighbours Mandy Norman
who is an artist and graphic designer has volunteered to work on this.3 Governance and Sustainability
following from 1 above we need to ensure
that a group of people will continue to direct and support the project over time, assist with income generation etc.4 Marketing and Promotion
Once the site is operational we need to make
sure people know it exists and find ways to explain and promote it - Launch Party anyone?
Overall I don't think this needs to be over formalised - but do feel it's important that the project is established with a group of people keen to be involved who agree a shared understanding.
I hope you can come on the 13th - do let me know if there are any other things to add to this outline agenda - or if there are any questions by leaving a comment here.
