You guys threw your theme ideas into the fire and out of the flames rose… Revolution! Yup. The theme for Burning Seed 2015 will be Revolution, so get those creative juices flowing over the chrissy break because we’ve got dates for you too. Drum roll please…
Burning Seed 2015 will take place again at Matong State Forest from Wednesday 30 September to Monday 5 October.
You might have noticed that we’re finishing a day earlier than the 2014 event, and pack-down is the main reason for this change. With the bulk of participants leaving the event on Sunday or Monday, and the pack-down process not able to start until Tuesday, we have struggled to retain enough community crew to help with this last big heave-ho task.
But never fear: we won’t be hustling you off the site as soon as Monday hits. We will start packing down community services such as rangers, info centre, ice and toilets from midday, and you will still have 24 hours to leave Red Earth City.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a theme idea and used our new Town Hall Social voting tool to create the shortlist. Stay tuned for the chance to create next year’s theme design.
Revolution – a word so often charged with the bloody, ideological fury of a group seeking to overturn the prevailing
powers or structures as fast as their critical mass will allow.
But the power of Burning Seed’s revolution is not in rapid overthrow or raised fist. Its power is in the depth of motion
and change, and drawn from the love and evolution that live within the word itself.
Revolution is the constant, circular return to the beginning, the omega of the old and the alpha of the new. It is the
panorama of new vistas and experiences emerging on the horizon of each new rotation of our world.
And as Burning Seed takes its sixth spin around the sun, the event and its ten principles continue to provide a pivotal
point for those seeking a (r)evolution in how we all live, love, work and play together.
Our revolution is both an act of humanity and one of fire. It scorches the earth and tears itself open for the sapling of change,
from the deeply personal to the greater social fabric of our growing community. It awakens the heart and flies the spirit like an ensign. is our incendiary phoenix.
