In the past friday 6th of November 2009, the VLP students had a meeting in order to resolve why unequivocally they have been refused access to the Lecture Theatre after being booked by Douglas O'Connell (VLP Course Tutor ). Since the beginning of the year the students have been confronted with a variety of problems that are similar to the one that had happened. In the meeting were present all students except from Georgie Manly, Lauren O'Day and Jeanne Mirodatos. Upon to decisions made by most of the students I, Filipe Canha (VLP Student Representative), underline the most important fractions to address.

- Try to book the Theatre once a mouth.

- Black Space - Black Box for video and light experiments.

Upon this decisions I, Filipe Canha (VLP Student Representative), had a conversation with Kate James (External Relations Head) which stated that it is necessary to have a meeting in order to immediately resolve the situation. Unlikely, Simon Betts (CCW) wont be at Wimbledon College of Art on Tuesday the 10th and there is a need to have this meeting urgently.

"Applause merely indicates something mediocre, dull, regurgitate or too well digested. The audience is not alive, and is blinded by communal intellectual intoxication."
