Participants apply to join a small group for discussion and debate 
around shared concerns. Agendas and outcomes are decided by the 
attendees - who will meet electronically prior to assembling on 
Grindstone Island - and may include publications, exhibits, joint 
projects, or in-depth critical discourse. A facilitator with valuable 
experience will help a carefully selected group achieve its 
objectives.
