The meeting was held on Sunday, January 17 from 5:00pm – 6:30pm (approximately)

The meeting was held on Zoom.us and can the recording can be seen on You Tube here:

Attendees:

  • Sophia the Orange
  • Reynsa Keyferin
  • Scholastica Joycors

The attendees all introduced themselves, but since we all know each other pretty well already, it was quick.

Summary:  Sophia checked that Scholastica had read the Guild Plan (Atlantia Performing Arts Guild FINAL plan) and asked for feedback. Scholastica had nothing to add and generally supported running with the plan.  Sophia mentioned that Teleri had emailed in some great and very thoughtful feedback about the plan. Teleri suggested one addition to the plan which was to clearly ask the performing community what they want. Sophia will add that to the Plan document and plan for a time to start a project to collect input from the community – which may be as simple as posting an invitation and tracking the discussion.

Scholastica agreed to join Reynsa in leading the effort to create Best Practices for Performing Arts Competitions. This includes a number of tasks not limited to: training non-performers to be judges, collecting a list of people kingdom wide willing and able to serve as judges, and making use of the improved Performing Arts judging sheets Scholastica edited.  Much discussion was had about various aspects of competitions, bad competitions we’ve seen, and the need to include guidance on documentation of performing arts.  Sophia suggested asking for support on documentation from Teleri who’s already teaching a class on “Research for Performers.”

(Johann had made note earlier in the last call that a list of people capable and willing to judge performing arts competitions kingdom wide would serve our kingdom greatly. He had a great deal of difficulty finding people to help him judge competitions during his year as Kingdom Bard.)

Sophia asked that some kind of plan for the way forward on this effort be written down and shared at least in time for Atlantia University’s Winter Session on February 6th. A meeting of the guild will happen during lunch including a Zoom call where we can share the plans made so far.

Reynsa will be in a conference for her day job on February 6, and Scholastica can’t attend in person due to distance, but both agreed that some kind of delivery of a plan for their project would be presented to the Guild on February 6th remotely. Scholastica may join in the call during lunchtime from University (Zoom.us will be used again) or will send a report to Sophia ahead of time.

We also discussed the role of the Kingdom Bards. Sophia reported that our two new Kingdom Bards, Lord Gideon and Master Ruaidhri (ro-ree’), had been discussing already some direction they wish to go in. Some discussion covered how the Kingdom Bard role could work with the Guild’s role of Royalty Liaison, and Scholastica also made some suggestions for the new Kingdom Bards based on her experience as Kingdom Bard in 2014. We discussed Scholastica’s experiences communicating with the Baronial Bardic Champions and other contacts.

The call ended with Sophia promising to post the notes from the meeting and the link to the Zoom recording on the Atlantia Performing Arts Blog.  The next call will be February 6th during lunch from University and another call will be held from Ymir on February 27th at 11:00am – 12:00noon.

The SECOND conference call for the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild will happen on Sunday 17th of January, 2016 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.  We’re using Zoom.us which is a lot like Skype in that you can log in via internet and use your web cam and speakers/microphone or just call in with a regular phone. We will be discussing the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild FINAL plan, particularly the effort to document Best Practices for Performing Arts Competitions and the role of the Kingdom Bards.

Attendees:

  • Sophia the Orange
  • Manus MacDhai
  • Johann von Solothurn
  • Reynsa Keyferin
  • Richard Wynn
  • Teleri the Well Prepared

The attendees all introduced themselves, but since we all know each other pretty well already, it was quick.

Summary:  Sophia led the discussion through the document of the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild FINAL plan. Response was mostly positive and in support of the plan as written. Johann, Richard, and Reynsa all stepped up into roles as follows:

Johann and Richard agreed to lead the effort to create Best Practices for Bardic Circles. We’re not all convinced yet that using terms of “Marshall” and “Authorization Cards” will work. The intention is that the term is a joke and there is no requirement to be authorized in Bardic Arts to run a circle. There is, however, the real possibility that people will not understand the optional nature of the “Authorization Cards” or “Bardic Circle Marshall Training.”  At first glance, Richard thought there might be a requirement, so other people could easily also have the same first impression regardless of our intention. So, further discussion is warranted.

Reynsa agreed to take the lead on the effort to create Best Practices for Performing Arts Competitions. This includes a number of tasks not limited to: training non-performers to be judges, collecting a list of people kingdom wide willing and able to serve as judges, and making use of the improved Performing Arts judging sheets Scholastica edited.  Scholastica missed this call, but is highly likely to join Reynsa in this effort.

(Johann had made note earlier in the call that a list of people capable and willing to judge performing arts competitions kingdom wide would serve our kingdom greatly. He had a great deal of difficulty finding people to help him judge competitions during his year as Kingdom Bard.)

Sophia asked that some kind of plan for the way forward on these two efforts be written down and shared at least in time for Atlantia University’s Winter Session on February 6th. A meeting of the guild will happen during lunch including a Zoom call where we can share the plans made so far.

The call ended with Sophia promising to post the notes from the meeting and the link to the Zoom recording on the Atlantia Performing Arts Blog. To vote for the time of the next conference call on Zoom.us, please visit the Doodle.com poll here: http://doodle.com/poll/5cekksbi4hggbwsx

Another call will be held before the Winter University session and a meeting will be held during lunch at University.

Since I had to call in sick at Unevent, the kickoff meeting for the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild will be held as a conference call on December 20, 2015 from 4:00 – 5:30pm.

We will be using Zoom.us, an online service much like Skype but with some extra fun features:

  • anyone can call in using either a web browser on the internet or a regular phone line
  • you can use a web cam or not
  • the call will be recorded for later viewing
  • no account is necessary for you to join

Please feel free to join in the call even if you did not RSVP. This call is open to anyone interested in supporting and participating in the Performing Arts Community of Atlantia.

If you’re on the call or not, please read the plan I will present to the guild on the call available at this link:

Guildmistress of the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild

Atlantia Kingdom MOAS Deputy of Performing Arts

Atlantia Performing Arts Guild is REBORN!

The Queens have spoken! Both of them! Our own beloved Queen Adelhait and Gloriana herself, Elizabeth I, Queen of England, agreed upon the day of the Natal Anniversary celebrated in the Canton of Buckston-on-Eno (the Buckston Birthday event, November 14th) that the Guild Master of the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild, our own Master Corun MacAnndra, was needed in Elizabethan London to serve the Lord Chamberlain’s Men more than he was needed in his homeland of Atlantia. Her Majesty Elizabeth swore to return him when Master Shakespeare’s troupe finally learned proper pronunciation of the Queen’s English. Until that day, Her Majesty Adelheit is allowing me to serve as the guide (cat herder) at the head of the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild.

As such, I am leading the first official meeting of the new and REBORN Atlantia Performing Arts Guild at UNEVENT!  We meet this Saturday at 4:30pm in the Auditorium. World domination by 5:30pm.

Unevent Schedule:  https://sites.google.com/site/atlantiaunevent2015/schedule

A draft Guild Restructure Plan has been written out and approved by numerous appropriate and reasonable stakeholders. This plan does not recreate a guild structure from SCA period, but rather creates a structure of positions and job descriptions that creates a structure of support that will actually help performers of all kinds perform more and perform better throughout our Kingdom. This guild will not include auditions, rankings, judgements, or other inhibitors.

This plan still has room for suggestions from the populace! Please bring your dreams, projects, and requests! Come to the meeting and put your ideas on the whiteboard! Are you someone who loves to perform – or dreams of maybe trying it out someday? Then you have a place in the Performing Arts Guild! Come to the meeting at Unevent and learn how we make dreams come true!  Disney ain’t got nuthin’ on us!

If you’d like to read a copy of the draft Guild Restructure Plan ahead of time, request a copy via email from me via dmoas-performance AT atlantia.sca.org.

Long Live the Queens!

— Lady Sophia the Orange, Guildmistress of the Atlantia Performing Arts Guild

Atlantia MOAS Deputy for Performing Arts
