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.

Campfire Conversation : Living in Relationship.

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.

Join us for an  evening of conversation, connections, ideas and reflection.  We’ll be looking at how work will look in the future and how it will affect us all. We'll re-imagine a future with more compassion and equality -  a place where all can flourish, create and experience beauty; and we’ll explore what we can do as a group to kick start this movement locally.

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.

Overnight camping (a space in the garden) for those who wish to travel - no cost, there will be a couple of portaloos no other facilities, bring own food and drink. People coming for the conversation are only welcome to camp on the Saturday night. It's just a private little gathering for friends to get together with the totally added bonus of the campfire conversation on the sat night
