The organizing team spent hours via skype and then in Bolivia, discussing who should be invited to the Workshop.  The organizers sought to balance highland and lowland representation, particularly given the Andean-centric position of Evo Morales’ administration of the time.  Gender balance was also a strong consideration throughout the organizing, although the project did not come close to achieving it. There were two women on the five-person organizing team and out of the 20 invited participants, 5 were women. Organizers were also wary of having too many participants who worked directly with the central or local autonomous governments.  Could so-and-so of the Ministry of Cultures obtain permission to miss work and then leave her state work obligations at the door and participate as a musician and representative of civil society?  The organizers faced multiple dilemmas here. As they circled through names of possible participants, the heavy political issues of the moment--like the TIPNIS tent city in La Paz that represented a significant challenge to the supposedly pro-indigenous government of Evo Morales—also determined who might or might not have time to participate in a four-day workshop on the seemingly tame topics of creativity and recognition.
