Dear Melanie and Pierre,
a really great summary of the discussion! Thanks a lot, this will help
to develop the next steps very much.
I would add on the summary the offer of Public Art Lab to host the next
reSource network meeting in May, which I introduced to you at the end of
the last meeting.
Perhaps the friends of Public Art Lab would like to add something more
about the next initiative (date, format, address, etc.)?
All the best,
