Public minutes

(Rachel, 1 min)

Get ok from all board members to upload minutes on wiki (or else discuss alternative below)
Objections? OK

Who can keep the time?


Point 1: Status on the new Coop and its Espace Créateur

inspections (hopefully ok! esp in regards to roof and asbestos) and work being organised, with hoped for move by February 2019

Things look good, the space alliance coop will soon be registered (registre commerce)

Initially the rent is handled through Raffael and Rachel, will be handled by coop once its registered.

Vanessa: when to move in?

Rachel: movers 1rst february

Luc: negociate with movers to move things from Rachel's place

Rent around 600 chf for our space

Consider getting some money in a future meeting

Rent garantee 1704 chf

subrenting Contract between Hackuarium and the space alliance

For next meeting: get overview on who to join the coop, what does it imply (maybe Rafael can bring more insight)

Possibly share coop statutes on slack to get a better view

Point 2: Transfer of info from Sam to new 'responsable IT' of Hackuarium

Still hoping for some edits to the main website ('moving labs' banner and location alt, at the least)
Yann H says he can take on much of this (slack access and more) and maybe one of Vithoo's friends can help too.

Masoud can get the accesses/logins from Sam once his exams are finished. Ask instagram login

Point 3: Preparations for the meeting of the General Assembly

27fev19, need finance 'bouclement' (Masoud update), announcement and agenda sent by 30 days before meeting (27jan)
For editing of Statutes, will need to at least change Articles 3 and 5 for our new space!
Agenda should be begun.

Point 4: Upcoming Projects and Events

  • Alienated Landscapes event and workshop, Hackuarium - Ateliers Bellevaux Mai 2019. It's happening, wanna be involved?
  • Water Projet: Collaboration with Anima (Fribourg, CH) and Miranda Moss (CapeTown, SA). It's happening, wanna be involved?
  • Ditchley Foundation organized a prestigious Conference and invited us (we need to crowdsource black tie)! Collecting COMMUNITY QUESTIONS HERE and HERE
  • 500Foods, sequencing study in collaboration with EPFL and Campus Biotech prof (LucH can lead on event planning, while RA liases and organises also between SDC's Paulina and Pietro and EPFL's Talia S.)

  • Potential Research Fellow after June 2019: Thierry Bardini, Montreal prof on sabbatical, planning a research-creation project with his partner, Beatriz Herrera, who is a intermedia artist (ceramics, sculpture and robotics, see http://beatrizherrera.ca/about/ ). The project involves building what they call “semi-living terrariums” as prototypes toward a garden. Sensor and electronics people, not just people with green thumbs, will probably be welcome for a transdisciplinary team!
