With the thoughts of Ancient Future still in our recent memories, it is time to launch the theme naming process for Burning Seed 2019.
Each year, Burning Seed has a unique theme which helps guide the artwork, inspiration, theme camps, events and costumes you see on The Paddock. Sometimes the theme is abstract or conceptual as with Imagine Nation (2015), Revolution (2017) and Ancient Future (2018). At other times they are a little more specific such as with Deep Space in 2016 (aka the burn that we must not speak of) and Deeper Space in 2017.
So now it's your turn. We want to hear what you think the theme should be for Burning Seed 2019. It could be something that represents the uniqueness of the land we hold our event on or something that brings inspiration to your costumes - you are only limited by your creativity!
It should be obvious, but we will say this anyway - any themes deemed as offensive - namely sexist, racist, misogynistic, transphobic, vulgar or homophobic, will not be included in the process.
Here are the dates you need to know:
- 29th October (today!) - theme suggestions open
- 11th November - theme suggestions close
- 12th November - shortlist will be released with an online poll you to vote on your favourites
- 22nd November - poll closes
The top 5 theme suggestions based on your votes will then be discussed and voted on at the Burning Seed Summit on 24th November, and the theme will be picked for 2019! We will officially announce the theme shortly afterwards!
