The Future of Burning Seed

The Future of Burning Seed

We want your input on the future of Burning Seed!

The Burning Seed organisation is currently speaking to the Burning Seed community about how to set-up the future event organising body. This has involved leading discussions about the best type of organisation (or group of organisations) to run it (i.e. incorporated association; a company limited by guarantee; or a co-operative), discussions about membership of the new organisation; who is on the board; and what the organisation should own. This is a discussion about the organisation running the event, rather than the event itself.


Information will be updated on this web page and on the Burning Seed Facebook page. Additional enquiries can be sent to futureofseed@burningseed.com, or you can subscribe to our mailing list (form below).
