Campfire Conversation : Hay On Wye Beacon (2)
Wednesday June 14th 19:00 The Old Electric, Hay On Wye
Hay on Wye isn't an ordinary place. For a town so small in size, it is packed with life, history and character and like Lewes, where the first Campfire Conversation is held this year, its non-conformist nature sits well with our fledgling community and we’re happy to be continuing our spring season of Conversation events in 2017 in this vibrant Welsh borders town with an invitation to broad and lively topical debate and in one of the most vibrant creative spaces in town.
Discussions are open-agenda and can involve global issues or local concerns, across a side spectrum of interests from politics to the arts, ecology and well-being to how we can work together co-operatively. We are about to launch a Campfire Pioneers ideas institute via our website, initiated and supported by Brian Eno, which we will discuss at our spring meetings, along with our Trailblazer politics campaigning.
There is a strong sense that people want to talk and discuss today's rapid global changes more than ever and Campfire can evolve into a platform that fulfils that need whilst looking at ways to structure long-term thinking and collective action in the face of the impending swing to the right that has taken so many people by surprise.
The Campfire Conversation is an adaptable concept which encourages new Campfire members to conceptualise their own event. We take it to the road from late April for three months of Campfire Conversations.
