October 26th, 2012 Meeting Minutes

October 26th Meeting Minutes, SJC

Oxfam Event:

To Whom It May Concern,

 Here is a description of the sale for your meeting:
This November 22nd from 12-6 Oxfam U of T is hosting the university’s first ethical/local holiday bazaar, featuring fair-trade, organic, and/or locally crafted wares. The event will be held in Seeley Hall at Trinity College and will feature a festive atmosphere and a variety of exciting vendors. Oxfam U of T is busy working on logistics, communicating with vendors, and trying to recruit more vendors to the show. We are hoping to include U of T students who make their own jewellery/clothes/art/etc. to participate. Tables cost only $15 and half tables $7.
We would greatly appreciate help in the weeks to come as we prepare for the big day. We have been seeking out collaborator clubs within U of T and the Hart House Social Justice group came to mind. Tasks that we are still working on include recruiting student artists and other vendors to the sale (researching and inviting), planning logistics, distributing posters, eventually helping with decorating, and MOST OF ALL getting the word out to ensure attendance. If you have a good eye on the Toronto arts community, decorating skills, logistics know-how, or a wide network on campus and beyond you would be invaluable to us as we work to make this sale a success.
