Key team of the Gathering consists of four people, each with their own area of responsibility: program, food, site. The team also includes the Joker 🃏 – a person who might not have the confidence to take a role in the core costing team, but is keen on learning the ropes.
Ideally, the team should include 2 people with previous hosting expertise and 2 new people. In order to ensure long-lasting Gatherings, we need to build up a pool of hosts, and there's no other way to learn than by doing.
People involved in creating the Gathering before and/or during the Gathering, usually coordinated by one of the Core Hosts.
