Members Generel Meeting is a open an analysis of the GENERATORprojects members’ base. On the 17th August, Generator will host a discussion to address an agenda assembled from commmunications between the members, committee and the artist.

The agenda for the meeting is currently been drawn up by Ben through a series of correspondance with other members and via an open access wiki – The letters to date can be viewed below. If you would like to bring up a particular point for the MGM agenda please contact Ben at

LETTER ONE – Participation
Dear Members,

I have recently become a member of Generator but have previously only practiced outside of Dundee. In August, Generator will host it’s first ever Members General Meeting (MGM). This will be a curated response to the committee’s performance, ‘Opening’, at the 2013 Members’ Show.

For many organisations the AGM or MGM is a legal requirement and will supply two main functions: To elect a committee and to enable members to have a say about the running of the organization, in turn increasing accountability.

In the next 3 months, I will ask members and the committee to raise open questions. I will then draft an itinerary and agenda from these; that highlights the collective concerns and confusions, in order to facilitate an open conversation.

First of all I would like to ask for questions around member’s participation. For example; “Could members curate one show per year?”

Please could you reply to by the June 23rd.

All the best,

Ben Burtenshaw

LETTER TWO – Committee
Dear Members,

Thank you for your responses to my previous letter; Particpation.

I write to you now, to find your concerns specifically associated with the committee: Moreover, the relationship between the committee and members. This letter is accompanied by a similar letter that will only be sent to the current committee.

In order to open the process of drafting an agenda for the MGM I have made a wiki:

As well as replying to this email, you are welcome to input to this open process.

Please send responses to – a closed email address that only I can access. I look forward to hearing your responses.

All the Best,

Ben Burtenshaw

P.S. Please note that the date for the MGM has been scheduled for the 17th of August, 4-6pm
