"I’ve just had a mind blowing extraordinary day at a Campfire Convention ‘Reimagining our World’ conference in Union Chapel, Islington. I’ve learned so much and have been saturated in the wisdom of good people doing good work in the world" Liv Torc
"Inspiring stuff,,... my heart is bursting" Lucy Sage
"Fabulous people, great engagement, loved it. You need to raise the subscription cost on your website." Lucille Glenn
" Last time I was at the Union Chapel I was learning how to be a clown. This time talking about co-living in an increasingly disconnected world at the Campfire Convention, with honest, challenging and fruitful discussions from people with passionate views on the direction of things. Moving, alarming, calming and arresting. Hope my clown training worked when needed, and stayed in the box when not! Look forward to more soon." Ben O'Sullivan
