FART IS RECRUITING!

What's all this talk about FART? At Burning Seed we love a good acronym, but all childish jokes aside, FART is Burning Seed's Fire Art Response Team. In other words, the FART is Burning Seed's fire department. We patrol the site and assist external agencies should things not go right. And now, we are on the hunt for some humans wishing to join the team!

We are after two types of humans: Those with Fire Fighting experience and those without (but wishing to learn).

But really, what does FART actually do?
FART provides rapid first aid fire response to fires that may break out - either in the bush or malfunctioning equipment/installations. FART also provides rapid response attack/confine during major art burns.

What is involved?
FART shifts are 12 hours long, during which time you will be patrolling the site in our vehicles, checking on permitted burn barrels and art fires, and generally providing a state of readiness for the worst case scenario.

If this sounds like something you can do/would like to do then apply via this link (even if you are a returning volunteer): https://www.volcor.net/TakeSurvey2.aspx?s=2276_burningseedregistration2018

We look forward to having you on our team!

Meet our new Burning Seed Town Councillor

Recently we announced a vacancy on the Burning Seed Town Council (BSTC) following the resignation of  ‘Prince’ Ali Mohammad Shams Ahmadi. The BSTC is in place as an interim group to support the Burning Seed event Team Leads and facilitate the process for a new stand-alone Burning Seed legal entity.

The BSTC plays a complementary role alongside the Team Leads and we consider all the wonderful volunteers involved in making Burning Seed happen each year as playing an equally important role in creating an extraordinary event for us. The BSTC acts as a bridge between the strategic and operational sides of the event.

The process involved the applicants submitting their nomination with background and experience, interviews with the candidates and then a final assessment and decision by the existing Burning Seed Town Council members.

We were really impressed by the qualities of the three candidates who nominated. It is wonderful to see the broad skill sets and varied passions of the Burner community who are looking to increase their participation.

After consideration, we are pleased to announce our new Burning Seed Town Councillor.

Lisa Dyer-Randall (aka Minty Miss America)

Lisa was a member of the Mint Country Club theme camp since her first Burn in 2014, taking on the Team Lead position for Mint in 2017. This year will see her at the helm of a new theme camp, Hoi Polloi. Lisa has also been a Ranger since 2015 and previously served as Treasurer for Melburners.

Lisa brings kindness, pragmatism and a passionate community focus to the Town Councillor role. She has decades of  effective management and board experience, and the rare ability to be both goal and process focused.

We are all excited to begin her onboarding process and look forward to working alongside her.

Burning Seed Financials – 2017 Event

Whilst things are very much in motion for Burning Seed 2018, our finance team have been busy dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on the 2017 event. We entered last year in an unusual financial position due to the flooding and subsequent cancellation the year before. There were significant delays in us receiving half the insurance payout which meant that we used all our cash reserves to ensure that we could payout ticket refunds in a timely manner. This meant we had to instruct all our teams to work to very lean budgets, a task they undertook superbly. The final insurance money arrived just days before the event began and means that we are now well placed for 2018 and beyond.

Over on the right you can see the totals spent in each area, and here's a bit of detail of where the money went:

ADMIN: We have a whole army of people dedicating their time and experience to run Seed on a completely voluntary basis, and we cover many of pocket expenses for doing so, such as stationary, fuel, phone, etc. There are also bank fees and other office expenses. Finally we pay for external accountants to prepare our quarterly GST returns and assist with other financial services.

ART AND THEME CAMP GRANTS: We award grants to artists and theme camps to bring their amazing, weird and wonderful offerings to Seed. What makes a burn different to other festivals is the spectacular and creative art along with the huge variety of theme camps. We have already significantly increased the art budget for 2018 and as the event grows, so will the art.

CIVIC SERVICES: This is the cost of building the major installations onsite; Centre Camp, the Effigy and the Temple. It also includes the budgets for many of our teams including Gate, Greeters, Sanctuary, and PEER Rangers, who are all critical in ensuring our city runs smoothly.

CREW COSTS AND TRAINING: For over five weeks before the event a dedicated team are onsite full time, living and breathing the creation of our city on the Paddock. Our crew numbers swell during the event to ensure everything runs smoothly and safely. We feed the build crews (our kitchen team are amazing) and provide some basic appreciation to everyone who volunteers. Essential training is also provided, including WHS, heavy machinery accreditations, first aid, and whitecards.

DONATIONS: All the profits from ice sales get donated to the local Matong Primary School. It’s one of the many ways we say thank you to the local community who support us so well. We also provide money to Red Earth Ecology for the wonderful work they do on regeneration and landcare projects in the areas surrounding Red Earth City.

IT COSTS: The Seed organisers are spread far and wide across this great brown land (and a couple live overseas too) which means we rely heavily on services such as email, cloud storage, video conferencing, and other collaboration tools to help plan the event. We also have a need for specific applications for tasks such as volunteer management and finance.

PERMITS, FEES AND OTHER VENUE COSTS (EXCL. TOILETS): As we are on NSW Forestry land, we have to pay a fee for every beautiful participant on the site. There are also significant other venue costs to run a safe and smooth event including roadworks, signage, and the cost of transporting our storage containers to and from site.

PUBLICATIONS AND COMMUNICATIONS: Where would you be without the What Where When, Survival Guide, a very occasional email, and Burning Seed website? This is the printing and publication costs of bringing all that lovely knowledge and information to you.

SAFETY AND REGULATORY SERVICES: We want to give everyone a safe and wonderful experience, so we engage teams of professional medics and security guards to look out for you and support the wonderful work done by the Red Earth Rangers. As the event grows we have additional costs we need to cover to meet the requirements of the local emergency services, including having an ambulance pre-deployed on site at certain times. Then there are a variety of insurance policies required including public liability and the all important cancellation insurance!

TOILETS: If there is one area where you don’t want to skimp on quality, it’s toilets. Our Sanitation team does an amazing job of ensuring we all have somewhere nice to conduct our ‘business’. They also continue to examine ways to keep costs down whilst ensuring the toilets are pumped, cleaned, and restocked with dunny rolls on a regular basis. We think they’re amazing.

TOOLS, HEAVY EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS: Heavy equipment and materials are  scissor-lifts, telehandlers, generators etc—all coordinated by DPI and used for the various infrastructure needs of Seed, supporting the effigy and temple builds, as well as all of the other Art and occasionally desperate Theme Camps! DPI also require a wide variety of drills, hammers, saws and other tools. Probably some nails too.

TRAVEL AND SUMMIT CONFERENCE: The Annual Seed Summit in November is the only time outside the event that we are able to bring all the event leads together in the one place. The time is used to examine what went well and what needs to be improved from the event that was just held, and to begin planning for the following year. It’s a weekend that contributes massively to the continued success of Burning Seed.

VEHICLE HIRE AND FUEL: We are pretty far away from everywhere so need to utilise vehicles to transport materials to and from site. Once onsite we employ a variety of utes and buggies to assist with the work of the build crews and our site safety teams.

Share your experiences of the Ten Principles

Dearest Burners,

Whether you’re an old flame or a fresh-faced burgin, we want to hear your voice!

The ten principles are a distillation of what separates a burn from being another music festival; transforming a movement into a community that can bring these concepts to the world and make positive change.

For newcomers and yet-to-burners, understanding the principles and how they end up playing out in real life can be a real challenge. There is often a huge gap between a burgin’s expectations and the reality of a burn, and Burning Seed is no exception.

So we need your voice!

Do you remember your discovery of the ten principles? Was it many eons ago, or more recently?

Some communities view “each one teach one” as an extended principle, and in that spirit we invite, solicit, urge and entreat you to share with us your experience of the Ten Principles.

Share with us, the community, and future burners what the Ten Principles mean to you. Are there stories you can share? An explanation of a principle that you think doesn’t get enough attention? Surprises you encountered? Tricks or tips you have that relate to a principle (or three)?

We’re opening this right up and there are no wrong answers; so let loose and write something you feel passionate about. But your creativity doesn’t need to stop there - shoot a video and link it to us! Write a song! However you can bring your experience to benefit the community is welcomed and celebrated.

Consider how you can participate in making this radically inclusive community more accessible and understood. We’ll digest your responses and look at ways we can bring this cultural knowledge to the community, starting with the website. All in the name of Participation and Communal Effort!

You’ll find a link to our submission form below. You can either type straight into the form, or upload a word document, PDF, media file or anything else you have prepared.

Locals Ticket Launch

2018 marks the 7th year that Burning Seed will be held at our home of Matong State Forest. Ever since our first burn there in 2011 we have always had an amazing amount of support from the local community. Without this support, the organisation and running of our burn would be so much harder.

We are continually looking at ways that we can show our support back to the local community. Existing initiatives include increasing the value of goods and services we purchase locally each year, and continuing to expand the native regeneration work done by Red Earth Ecology.

The other way we like to say ‘thank you’ to those living close to the place we call Red Earth City is to provide discounted tickets for locals to attend Burning Seed. Whether you have been attending since 2011, or would like to dip your toe in the water for the first time this year, this is part of how we welcome you HOME to experience the sights, sounds, and delights that our community provides to all who attend.

Locals Tickets are $165 and provide you access from the minute gates open at midday Wednesday 26th September through to the last dusty goodbye 6 days later on Tuesday 2nd October. To be eligible for one of these tickets you need to live within 50km of Matong State Forest (not including Wagga Wagga and its surrounding suburbs).

If you would like to access a Locals Ticket then please email ticketing@burningsed.com with a copy of your driver's license or other photo ID that includes your address. Once they have verified your details they will email you a link to purchase your ticket through our ticketing provider Quicket.

If you have any questions about Locals tickets (or any other tickets for that matter) then please email ticketing@burningseed.com

It’s a wrap!

Wow, what a response we’ve had to the consultation process – over 1,500 of you crazy cats participated in some way. This is really a fantastic response, and the restructure committee is incredibly grateful for everyone’s input. This puts the effort in communal effort!

We now have a really solid dataset to begin designing an entity that will serve the needs of this community, both now and into the future.

The restructure committee, Town Council, and Red Earth City directors will spend the next few months considering the outcomes of the consultation. This analysis will support a final report on the the consultation. The report itself will make recommendations on the preferred legal entity, constitution, board composition, and membership (plus a couple of other items).

The final report will be presented at Seed, so please look out for that. More info will be posted closer to the time.
As usual, if you have anything else you want to say, or if you have any questions, please send them to futureofseed@burningseed.com. Updates will continue to be posted on our Future of Seed Page, on the Burning Seed Facebook page, or sign up to our Email List.

Burning Seed Town Councillor Role Available

Burning Seed needs you!

Do you have bright ideas, burning desires and a bit of time and effort to spare? Would you like to assist in the strategic governance of Burning Seed?

Last week Ali ‘Prince’ Mohammad Shams Ahmadi resigned from the Burning Seed Town Council after two and a half years of service to our community. As a result of Ali’s resignation, our Town Council of seven has a vacancy, and we need your help to fill it with somebody awesome!

Ali has been burning since 2012 and has made great contributions to the Melbourne Decom events and the establishment of the Melburners organisation. Ali joined the Town Council in 2016 - what ended up being a very difficult year with the cancellation of Burning Seed, and we are indebted to his hard work and dedication since then. Ali is leaving his Town Council position to focus on new challenges in his work life, Melburners and his theme camp - Middle Eastern Mafia.

On behalf of all Burning Seed participants we take this opportunity to thank Ali for his dedication over the years and now, for making room for another participant to provide leadership to our community.

What does it all mean?

The Town Council is drawn from the community that participates in the event each year and discusses, deliberates and makes key decisions on its future direction. This ensures that Burning Seed will burn brighter than ever for generations to come. If you have experience in events or project management you’d make a great candidate. For those without such experience - good communication skills, working well with others and a dash of leadership experience would put you in good stead.

Commitment required:

  • TWICE MONTHLY meetings (currently the 2nd Wednesday and 3rd Tuesday of each month), with infrequent emergency meetings when needed
  • a FEW HOURS each month dedicated to doing some Burning Seed homework

If your interest is piqued please find out more here about the issues you need to consider before standing for Burning Seed Town Council (see page 3 of the 2016 application form). Then, if you’re happy with that, fill in an application

Applications close on Tuesday May 29, 2018.  

The application process

There is a 3 week application window after which the current Town Council will need a week to review applications before contacting you with further information. Those who pass the first round will have an interview with current Town Councillors before final selections are made. The following week, applicants will be informed of the Town Council’s choices before the successful new Town Councillor will be announced to the broader burn community!

Where does the Town Council come from?

Red Earth City Pty Ltd (REC Pty Ltd) has been the legal entity behind Burning Seed since 2010. Until 2015 the Red Earth City Town Council oversaw the Burning Seed event and supported other burner initiatives under the banner of Burning Man Australia, all on behalf of the Red Earth City Board of Directors.

In November 2015, Directors of REC Pty Ltd decided on governance changes before important issues related to the event's sustainability and growth could be addressed. The Burning Seed Town Council (BSTC) was formed to focus on the Burning Seed event, in order to free up the Directors to focus on the wider Burner culture in Australia.

Now, BSTC reports to the Directors of REC Pty Ltd, and acts as the piece of the puzzle between the strategic and operational sides of the event.

We are currently in the middle of a restructure process, as mandated in the REC Pty Ltd constitution, which will deliver recommendations to the REC Directors on the creation of a new entity outside of REC Pty Ltd to guide and develop the Burning Seed event in the future.

 

Current Town Councillors

 

Phil ‘Sherpa’ Smart

Phil’s first burn was Burning Man in 2001, after many years of being hassled by friends in San Francisco. It was there that he finally felt at home, like he'd found what I was looking for. He burns due to shared values of community, art and self expression; dependable people, who are smart, funny, crazy and creative and who make the world a better place to live in.

Phil is on the BSTC to play a part in fostering the community and helping to steward it as it grows. Phil has a vision not only for Seed, but for the wider Australian burner community, to evolve and further develop its own unique identity. For the future Phil would like to see Burning Seed continue to grow at a pace that is sustainable. He would like to see more spin off projects that take burner culture out into the default world - initiatives like Burners Without Borders and Black Rock Solar in the states, as well as an art foundation to get burner art into off-paddock locations. These days it’s about so much more than Seed, with other burns springing up like Blazing Swan and Modyfire, and strong regional communities around the country.

Phil believes Burning Seed can push the boundaries of radical self governance, pioneering concepts such as direct democracy and liquid democracy in the way the community organizes itself and makes decisions. The dream of Burning Seed (or even the Australian burner community collectively) owning its own piece of land someday, to continue the experiment in a new way, is close to his heart.

On the last day of the very first Seed, there was a small closing ceremony down by the river where ash was released into the stream. Phil said that he couldn’t help but shed some tears of joy and relief at the fact that there was finally a community of incredible burners in his homeland who embodied fully the spirit of the playa.

 

Shaye ‘The President’ Harty

Born in the most American of all families in Modesto, California in 1979, Shaye had heard of Burning Man in her college years but didn't have any friends that she could go with. It wasn't until she moved to Humboldt County and became the ‘Rutabaga Queen’ that she was gifted a ticket to BM by a mysterious woman that she didn't even know! Her very first Burning Man was in 2005 as part of KazBus camp and she hasn’t missed one since!

This crazy woman has been to 13 Burning Man, 4 Burning Seed, 4 Afrika Burn and 4 Blazing Swan events…. so far, with no plan to slow down anytime soon! Speaking of experience and skills, Shaye has been the Outside Services Manager at Burning Man, Event Manager at Blazing Swan, Site Manager at Afrikaburn Burn, and former Admin Team Lead, former Event Coordinator, current Site Safety Facilitator and site manager at Burning Seed. Shaye's dream is to be able to live in Melbourne for 9 months working on Art and Events, and then live our winter months in America since it is summer there, traveling around working on events and visiting her family back home.

Next time you think about fighting her and pushing her out of your way to get a drink at one of the bars on the paddock remember she has a brown belt in Judo and she is pretty good with a lasso!

 

Victoria ‘Tech Support’ Vickery

A native Californian, Victoria first heard of Burning Man at the age of 12, and finally made the pilgrimage for the first time in 2010 as co-lead for the Connexus theme camp village (which included the notable Heart Deco bus). To date, she has been to 8 burns across 3 continents.  After migrating to Australia in late 2013, she jumped into the local burner scene with both feet, attending her first Burning Seed as the 2nd In Command for the Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI).

Over the past four years she has grown with the organisation as Co-Lead of DPI, Engine Room Facilitator, Admin Team Lead, Site Manager, Event Coordinator and member of the Restructure Committee. And of course, she also serves on the Burning Seed Town Council.

Her favourite thing about attending burns has been how much she has been able to learn: about herself, about others, about working together and social dynamics and about how to kick major ass.  She is now a dynamo with both a power tool and a spreadsheet and has gained a lot of experience managing people and projects. She is currently applying these skills to her day job.

 

Jason ‘Pondage’ Bond

Jason has been burning since 2014, at which point he jumped head first into the fun and excitement. He has taken on several roles within the organisation as well as being President of Melburners and a member of the Town Council since 2017. His love of a backyard gathering led him to found “The Yard” theme camp for Burning Seed in 2017. His favourite thing about burning is seeing the incredible scale of people’s imagination and what is possible when people share ideas and work together.

A Melbourne native, in the default world Jason runs an engineering business and enjoys traveling to the farthest reaches of the world while doing so. He enjoys carrying his trumpet around the paddock and sharing a tune with anyone.

 

Jo ‘Whisper’ Roberts

Jo is a Riverina local who jumped feet first into Burning, attending Seed in 2012 as the Team Lead for Kids Camp. Rapid growth saw Kids Camp swell from 20 to 85 people by 2014, at which point Jo guided the succession of a new leadership team which assumed the helm in 2015.

In 2013 she founded Red Earth Ecology, fueled by her love of and knowledge around the local ecosystems that make up the Nurrungdera lands that Seed is graciously welcomed onto. Red Earth Ecology conducts education and community outreach initiatives designed to increase knowledge and protection of the flora and fauna of Red Earth City, incorporate Indigenous land management techniques as well as bush regeneration by engaging in regular biodiversity offset plantings connecting Burners with local landholders in the Matong district.

Jo is an active member of the BWA (Burning Witches Association), a collective which aims to increase the visibility of and opportunities for women at Seed. One offshoot has been the formation of the successful LUNACHICKS coalition, whose all female DJ line-ups have been kicking arse, both at Seed and beyond the paddock. She has also participated in the Queensland Regional Burn, Modifyre, since 2014, where she holds no significant positions of responsibility and uses this time to connect with and foster her children’s love of Burning.

In 2017, Jo joined the Burning Seed Town Council - a position she still holds, and has enjoyed the detailed insight into the operational and administrative workings of the event. Jo continues to be inspired by the Burning Man Project, and its potential for translating the transformational aspects of the Burn into change in the default world.

 

Kuy ‘RaveDaddy’ Thurman

Kuy started burning in 2015 when he attended Burning Man, camping with Boosh! and then Burning Seed with Telekinetik Chair Repair just a few weeks later after returning to Australia. Kuy has increased his involvement with Telekinetik every year since, including the cancelled year of 2016 when Telekinetik took to the very muddy banks of The Murray River at Sideburn - the event that Kuy accidentally named.

In 2017 he joined the Town Council prior to Burning Seed and performed multiple Ranger shifts on the paddock with his seven week old daughter strapped to his chest. He’s sure that BabySparkles is certain to become a Junior Ranger in just a few years. It took him four burns before he was given his paddock name RaveDaddy. He was invited to the Jedi Council leadership team for Red Earth City Rangers after the 2017 burn and takes great pride in being a part one of the teams that helps keep all participants safe in the unique and often challenging environment of the paddock.

He believes that the 10 Principles of Burning Man should be extended to the default world as much as possible and that by participating in a burn we create space for each other to fulfil our potentials. Be sure to say hi when you next see him on the paddock or a dance floor.

Burner Profiles are almost here!

Tickets for Burning Seed 2018 - Ancient Future are so close you can almost touch them, but first it’s time to reach into your past and revisit your Burner Profile.

We introduced Burner Profiles in 2016 for a lot of great reasons including better understanding our participants through basic demographic information, reducing instances of scalping and ensuring that our community understands the 10 Principles that are the foundation of any burn. Thanks to some great planning and your support they have been super successful in achieving all these things, and with tickets around the corner it’s time to make sure that your Burner Profile is up to date.

On Monday 16th April at 7pm AEST Burner Profiles will go live for 2018 and you’ll be able to head to the Quicket event page, login to your account and review your profile to ensure everything is as it should be.

All this information and more can be updated in your Burner Profile so that you’re ready to explore Ancient Future. If you haven’t yet created a profile then this is your opportunity. Don’t be scared. Many wise old adventurers have trodden this path before you. Every participant must either create or update their Burner Profile before buying a ticket to Burning Seed 2018.

This first step along the path to Ancient Future can be found at http://qkt.io/seed18. If you’ve previously created a Burner Profile then you’ll need to remember your Quicket login details. They will either be your email address and a password, or you may have used Facebook to create an account.
