In “The Committee” 8 to 12 year old children explain how they decided to spend 7000 pounds. They discuss the process of decision making and the values guiding their decisions. The children are 11 regulars at a youth center in Bow, London, and were invited by the artist to spend her Emdash Award budget, normally aimed towards production of art work for Frieze Art Fair. The children were free to spend the money any way they wanted as well as to choose how to make decisions in a group.
