I have agreed to join the steering panel for the project and tonight we met for the first time at the Emerald Nursery in Frosterley which is the charming former railway station. I met several people for the first time who all have different roles to play in the project. [EDIT The steering panel were to meet at this location throughout the project and beyond. ] I agreed to set up a production website to assist the project development and also an e-list to facilitate communication between the panel members and also to communicate with would be participants. For the task of creating the production website I chose to use “Google Sites” for the functionality of document uploads and event planning it offered. This placed functionality over design which was fine.
To kick start the process of recruiting participants we have decided to run some workshops at the end of the month. I will produce something to promote the digital aspect of the project.
