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.

The town of Lewes in Sussex is no stranger to creating sparks. Its non-conformist nature sits well with Campfire Convention and we’re happy to be kicking off our first Campfire Conversation event of 2017 in this vibrant Sussex town with an invitation to broad and lively topical debate.

Campfire Convention is a new social network and community going out on the road to stage various Campfire Conversation discussions. The aim of Campfire is to shape an independent modern day co-operative with a remit as wide as the membership’s imagination. The community will decide on Campfire’s direction, priorities, policies and quality standards.
