The Fork Manifesto
Everybody at GMRC is involved in navigating systems in order to reach their goals.
As a member of management, the participant traverses the bridge between the staff of the centre and the seemingly remote corporate and estates staff. Tasks can take on surprisingly extenuated form. It takes a certain grace, patience and possibly gallows humour to experience this unscathed.
I was struck by the participant’s sense of humour and his ability to keep such things in proportion, or to bring them back down to size with humanity.
This manifesto allowed me to reference humour and its mechanisms for subversion and resilience.
