Centre Camp to the rescue – Swing Dogs Theme Camp finds a new home for the night after winds destroy their tent.

I’m sure you’ll agree the most joyous of the ten principles to practice is GIFTING   Well, did you also know that Centre Camp is a gift to YOU?

Centre Camp is built by the people, for the people, and it’s a place where anything can happen at anytime. One of

Centre Camp’s finest moment was in 2013 when it came to the aid of Swing Dog Circus Theme Camp who were able to host their opening night party in this communal camp after losing their own camp to galeforce winds.

For the last few years, we’ve also had a talented artist, Scar Keller, toil to bring this community a bigger and better space where we can co-create anything and everything our hearts desire.

Scar is passionate about the principle of COLLABORATION and has put her heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears into designing an awesome space for our community to gather and share inspiration and innovation. (And that’s why we call it Centre Camp  — together with the fact that you’ll find it in the centre of Red Earth City!).

For most of the year she is wielding power tools and cycling across Melbourne rain, hail or shine to build you and me a space to play in. During Seed you’ll find her building even more awesome shit and leaving Centre Camp to the Guardians to play
