Development is the idea that bedlam probably shouldn’t have been made into a theatre, as it is a death trap, and maybe with some money we could make it into an actual theatre, that is less of a deathtrap.
There’s now a Developement Subcommittee, that has existed since February 2014. We just talk about changes to the building and then try to convince the rest of the company that we should make those changes to the building. Of course it’s difficult as always money is always a problem. Guess we’ll find out what happens.
Development’s main task as a subcommittee is to discuss building improvements and developments, and eventually either dismiss them or bring them up so they can happen.
|Cafe||This involves knocking down the wall between the cafe and the toilet corridor and building a new counter in its place.|
|Balconies||From Leveling to building office space, there is a lot of space and lots to do on the balconies.|
|Dressing Room||This is the project for building new sofa benches along the sides of the room to make more space.|
|Office||This is the proposal of turning the office (and maybe ogg office) into permeant rehearsal space.|
Redevelopment was the plan to complete redo the theatre. It hasn’t happened yet.
Constitution Address: Article 4C/6b
Development attempts to hold forums every two weeks during termtime where we talk about building improvements. They are notified to the entire Company through the Facebook group. Everyone is welcome.
You can join the subcommittee by messaging/talking to the Convenor, or by emailing email@example.com. There isn’t much benefit to doing so as everyone is welcome to the forums… but you can join the group chat!
The Development Subcommittee has existed since Feburary 2014 and since then no one has been able to build consensus around its name. Also note, even though the amendment passed in 2014, it seems that no one ever got around to putting it into the Constitution and it slowly got forgotten.
4.10 ‘The Redevelopment’ is defined as long term improvements, developments, and maintenance of the Bedlam Theatre. The Development Subcommittee is to manage and oversee the redevelopment proposal and ensuring, as far as possible, that adequate development and major maintenance projects are carried out. The Development Subcommittee will represent the long term interests of the company, and conduct its business to encourage wider company involvement. Two Development Contacts will, at all times, have been appointed by a vote of the company at a company meeting or general meeting. The Development Contacts will be responsible for overseeing the Development Subcommittee, as well as being responsible for communication with the committee, the company, Friends of Bedlam, EUSA, and the University of Edinburgh regarding the redevelopment. Additional members may join the Development Subcommittee as appropriate, subject to ratification by the company at a meeting of the company. All Development Subcommittee members may be subject to a vote of confidence from the company. A member of the Development Subcommittee will attend at least one committee meeting per fortnight. Members of committee or other subcommittees may also hold a position on the Development Subcommittee.
4.9 The EUTC Development Committee will oversee the transition of the company through the University of Edinburgh’s Development Project (Bedlam-A Bright Future). The role of this committee will be to manage the Development Project from the point of view of the EUTC, and to plan for the running of the EUTC both during and shortly after the transitional period. The committee will consist of the EUTC President, the Friends of Bedlam chair, a Development Chair, and Communications, Temporary Venue Logistics, Project Completion Logistics, Facilities, Technical and Design Coordinators. The EUTC President and the Friends of Bedlam chair will be responsible for selecting a Development Chair. These three committee members will select the remainder of the Development Committee members through a formal application process involving interview by the three aforementioned members with later ratification by the company. The Development Committee members will all be members of the EUTC and will hold no additional voting rights. The Development Committee positions will remain active until at most 1 year after the completion of the Development Project.
