Campfire Conversations

A Project inviting members to host their own Campfire Conversation events this summer, or to attend others' events.

With spring under way, our thoughts turn to outdoor activities and the campfire experience. We're heading out around the UK between late April and mid July in the build up to this year's Campfire Convention 00.UK event.

If you are up for hosting / organising a Campfire Conversation for this summer, have a read of the articles in this Project.

The gathering works best as a small, intimate afternoon or evening, preferably with an outdoor element (as we can then have a fire too), which can be a pub or arts centre, a back garden or a field. Ideal size I can range from 10-100 people and would involve discussion, debate, thinkshop, exhibition, ideas exchange and a knees-up element (live acoustic music or DJs) and a food / drink element, often communal cooking.

This what happened around the Axbridge Campfire - a superbly curated, extended day in and outside an old house on the hill just outside the town with spectacular views over the reservoir, the Somerset levels and Glastonbury Tor.. some camped out, others came for the day Thanks to Barry, Soraya and crew for organising.

We are collectively working towards a framework for real and radical evolutionary change. A framework is not easily formulated or agreed but if you'd like to contribute to discussion around a framework for making these changes, meaningful, then here is our starter for ten, based on members input and feedback...
