- HEARING AND POSSIBLE MOTION TO APPROVE CONTINUATION OF AMENDED LOTTERY PROCEDURES TO ALLOW STREET ARTISTS TO ENTER INTO THE LOTTERIES NAMES OF STREET ARTISTS NOT PRESENT AT THE LOTTERIES
At its meeting of April 10, 2002, the Street Artists Committee voted to recommend to the full Arts Commission that the street artist lottery procedures be amended to allow street artists to enter into the lotteries names of street artists not present at the lotteries for a trial period of May 7 to July 2, 2002, a recommendation which was subsequently approved by the full Commission.
At the same time, the Street Artists Committee requested the Program Director to schedule, for the agenda of its June meeting, a hearing to review and possibly vote to continue the above amended lottery procedures. For its review, the Committee has asked to hear from street artists as to whether the amended procedures afforded them an increase or decrease (in percentages) in opportunity of obtaining selling spaces. The Committee has also asked that street artists testify to specific incidents in which they were helped or not helped by the new measure.
