Chapters Council[edit]

  • WMAT favores the KISS-modell, but would also support the Modell B. There will be a provisional budget of EUR 5000,-- for the council. Kurt Kulac and Manuel Schneider, the attendees of the 2012 chapters meeting had negotiated and voteed for the chapters council in the name of the WMAT-board.


WMAT supported this event and called for participants in Austria. We also reimbursted travel costs.

Photography project[edit]

  • There had been two attendees to the photo workshop in Nuremberg, which was supported by refunding travelcosts. WMAT-equipment had been used for this event too.
