10. Zone changes

a. Capoeira would like to move Zone from Sports Development to Creative Industries:

"Capoeira is a mix between a martial art, dance, acrobatics, music, culture and history. In terms of engaging with people, we are more like a dance society in that we give performances as opposed to marital arts who give demonstrations. Due to the cultural and historical aspects of the society and of Capoeira, we think it would be better to be within the Creative Industries rather than in the Sports Zone."

 b. Fandomonium Society would like to move Zone from Student Communities to Creative Industries:

"We feel that we fit in better among Creative Industries than in Communities, especially as similar societies such as the Pokemon Society are in that zone. We feel we'd be able to better engage with students as a whole, especially at the bunfight where we would arguably be more easily found by those looking for us. And finally, when we asked the society as a whole at the AGM and subsequently voted on it, the society voted in favour of transfering to CI."
