Sharing space and aspirations for stage tech room

Let us focus on projects, positive things We do the radio. Wednesday is the radio workshop. We could start on the idea of the Omni Media Project The space is there people can bring stuff there. It is a station it would be a shame if my station was moved. But if there are other stations. RIght now we've set up that I don't want it to be for storage. We're going to start moving the stuff. Not use the space as a storage space. That's kind of like a loft space as well. What is the media project. Production making media for omni Opal wants to keep their identity as Opal and yet together become the omni media group Finding common sground based on what we're currently doing. we would like to make the resources accessible. Liz: What the delegates said at the meeting about money:
