About Malvern Messages: project description

Postby John White on Mon Jun 26, 2006 3:49 pm

Malvern Messages is a project for the benefit of the people in Malvern and as potential Inspiration for the wider world at large

The project is structured as a regular one page paper newsheet to be distributed in the town, an internet discussion forum with the ability to express concepts and ideas not given an outlet by more conventional media, and as the potential for friendships and co-operations that may spring from the above

The structure of the website is flowing and adaptable, and new sections or changes to sections can be made very easily by John White or others who may come onto the administrative team

This flexibility also allows for sections focused on specific contibutors who have creative outlets that translate well into electronic media. John White will be running a section for his philosophical writings, and others can be facilitated in the same way, be they for poets or artists or astrologers. To be considered for a contributor section, simply contact John White and provide information about your work.

The regular newsheet will be sold at a value of one coin, allowing people to place their own value on the benefit the Malvern Messages Project is having for them

All the information in Malvern messages is also free to access via the site at any time

Contributors have editorial control of their own sections, and can make whatever arraingments for making their products available for financial return that they wish. There is no charge to be a contributor at Malvern Messages, and the site works on the reciprocal basis of donating to the project a portion of any finacial gain recieved: the % amount is left to the discretion of the contributor

To be long-term viable, Malvern messages needs to generate a positive income of £25 a week over costs (which are minimal). Anything over this amount will then be utalised to create further projects to benefit the Malvern community, including assisting the development of contributors material

Malvern Messages operates with complete fiscal and ethical transparency, and a section has been made on the site to allow the balance figures to be viewed at any time

At its heart, Malvern Messages is about developing solutions and fluidity of approach and facilitating putting them into action, on all levels from personal to social. It is limited only by imagination and the ability of the community to provide required support

Malvern Messages is also open to the wider public around the world to view and participate in, and if succesful in all its aims, has the potential to be a template for other communities to benefit from

Other services Malvern Messages could include might be:

* A section listing Self-Employed people and their services around Malvern to enable the community to make local choices and support local craftspeople

* An up-to-date guide to local gigs and other creative events

* Reviews and perceptions of local activities written by local people for local people. Pictures can be included with ease

And much much more

As a philosopher, I personally ascribe to strength through diversity. I am fascinated to discover what strength may develop from the diverse ability and energy of the people living in and around this most beautiful town

The balance of the posssibilities is up to you
