I think that an orchestra is a great idea - we have some instruments from the Main Grid (as Fox pointed out) and I think that Elsa's comment about interactive sculptures was to do with sound sculptures. May be difficult to do the new instruments - but heck it would be great if we could get it to work - and we have some instruments to start us off already ...   8)

Brilliant idea - and it could so tie in with the Schome Radio thingy ...

How about a 'book club'?  I am not at all sure if that is the right name, it probably isn't in that I don't mean we all decide to read the same book and discuss it which is what a book club usually seems to be.  Maybe 'books - reading and creative writing' would be better.  What I am suggesting and would be very willing to coordinate - or support or participate - would be a strand combining some of the following:

- creative writing (some brilliant stuff has happened in the past but we can make a new start - Schoems [short poems about schome a terrific innovation we could have another go at)
- multimedia authoring (not treading on toes of machinima etc but rather to do with making pictures and describing events for the http://schome.open.ac.uk/wikiworks/index.php/The_Schome_Park_bliki- some of which could be let's say 'fictionalised' - slight fantasy or totally outrageous (as long as fun, non-offensive and within the acceptable use policy).
- taking part in & just discussing things people do with books - OK read, talk about them even study them in English lessons - &  also the social online/offline ways of networking around books - sharing free books such as the BookCrossing scheme.

If there are any positive responses at all I will schedule an event or two in the calendar.  Obviously I would need some help - if it's OK if I start coordinating - or happy to support others.  I have found the forum hard to keep up with (although much easier since a big archive job was done a while ago thanks Fox and everyone who did that) so on the other hand if this suggestion is very much like another elsewhere do point me to it.

PS Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong with the link I feel very stupid  :-\ as I have done this loads of times OK before

This might tie in with the literature discussion which went on some time ago

As Fox says this fits well with things others have suggested - we had a creative writing building in SPi and at the last staff meeting the idea of a creative writing group was suggested (I think) - and we have a poetry discussion somewhere in here - and there is all the stuff to do with writing scripts for machinima ...

I'd certainly be up for you to coordinate this (which wouldn't preclude anyone else getting involved and helping to run it too) - and a good way to start would be to have some intitial events and see how they develop.

There is info here on how to put a hot link into a forum message - it isn't obvious!

Still, the worst is the *B*NP - there's a reason they're nicknamed the 'British Nazi Party' :P
