Every Coterie is led by a coterie leader, who makes decisions after discussion and mutual consultation. These decisions are then brought to the attention of the management team, who address the issue raised. Each Coterie’s members will choose a set time (ideally an hour each week) for virtual communication and discussion of agenda items relevant to the Coterie with the sole purpose of fostering curiosity through their original concepts and works. Coterie members can collaborate to develop event plans and address any pertinent logistical issues.
