Pirate Labs are monthly work meetings open to everyone where pirates from across the country gather. The labs are « the potluck » of projects, born out of an urge of self-management. They allow all pirates to propose a project, to evaluate the reaction of other pirates, and to launch a squad to work on it. Thus it's a place of empowerment. Indirectly, they allow crews to meet regularly and keep in touch. The general goals of the Lab are to
- Launch new projects: come and propose your project, and find pirates to achieve it with you.
- Meet other pirates
- Work in groups
- Explore democracy (a Lab is... a democracy laboratory!)
- Getting things done!
- Check together what pirates need to make progress
- Coordination between financial administration and what the pirates want
Pirate Lab Events
The current project is to organize one Pirate Lab every month from April 2015 on. There is a page for every Pirate Lab. Typically we follow the meeting guidelines as proposed by the internal democracy group. You can suggest topics for the agenda in the pad on the page or in the wiki page of the lab. The lab itself starts with a popcorn table where people can share their mood, what time they wish to leave and the projects they want to work on. Afterwards we split up in groups based on what people want to do/talk about. In the end everyone comes together to share what was done/discussed in the subgroups. The end of the lab is defined during the popcorn table based on when people want/need to leave.
