We just had the annual justseeds retreat! Three days in Braddock outside Pittsburgh, Pa across the street from a Steel Mill! Long days (10 hour sessions!) where we talked about our group projects (like the annual portfolio project- check out the Voices from the Outside project we did last year); our business structure, our blog, and all sorts of stuff. Here are a few photos that show us all meeting meeting meeting! We tried for consensus on all decisions. We will be tabling alot in the next few weeks (including at AS220 in Providence RI for the Anarchist Bookfair at the foo fest on August 15th where I booked the entertainment which includes SUN RA ARKESTRA!!!). Come check us out!
Among these photos is one of the more lighthearted activities we did to help us relax and break the ice; which was an exquisite corpse game where we would pass papers around the room and people would alternately write and draw. One was particularly funny; it started out as “I watched coyotes” and became a ridiculous drawing about a gerbil hypnotizing its pooh to teach it to clean up after itself.
Anyway, all this will lead to a great year of continued updates and info!
