Campfire Conversations

A Project inviting members to host their own Campfire Conversation events this summer, or to attend others' events.
Created on 22 Feb 2017

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.

Key Interests
The Campfire Conversation is a moveable and adaptable feast for Campfire members to organise and programme. What is evolving is a framework with some guidelines that have been built by members experiences so far.

What better time to RE-IMAGINE POLITICS than days before a general election? An opportunity for Frome to meet for real discussion with Campfire Convention and The Alternative UK - two cutting edge platforms for radical dialogue that have emerged from the desire to do things differently. It’s time to reclaim politics!

Fear - and how we might counteract it - was definitely high on the agenda at the Hay on Wye Campfire Conversation on Saturday night at The Old Electric Shop. Here’s my own take on the key threads a packed house discussed and what directions can be drawn form the discussions.

Ashburton becomes our Devon Beacon as the Campfire Conversations series continues on its late May. Along with its near neighbour Totnes, the Ashburton area has non-conformist tendencies and an alternative and free spirit which sits well with our fledgling community. We are happy to be continuing our spring season here with an invitation to broad and lively topical debate.

Join us for an  evening of conversation, connections, ideas and reflection.  We’ll be looking at how we exist in relationship with ourselves, others and the world around us, this conversation is an opportunity to explore the importance of relationship and reflect on those connections that have had a profound impact on us. We will also explore what we can do as a group to kick start this movement locally.
