Please add your notes from the session and any other comments for the future of such issue.
Fair play discussion
###Freelancing and funding for freelance advisers…
/* how to get money for stable spaces, but also money for freelancers to work in such spaces.
/* Rate for presentations and “what we do” and workshops, remove the artistic practice of being called by institutions that have “limited budget”, so limited money…stop this narrative
/* budget should be transparent
/* what we offer is viable 100 million (Biotopia) - how to present the work as valuable (brand as consultants?)

- are they willing?
/* for this, create a manifesto, where SOP, rates etc. A manifesto that speaks from the community. Set the standard higher than a minimum
/* to point out the professionalism - a collective pro identity
/* GitHub -> DIY science
