Want to run an event at Burning Seed 2017?
Are you getting organised for Burning Seed 2017? Are you planning to host an event on the paddock? Then you will be happy to know that event submissions for our What, Where, When Guide are open from Friday 14th July! We are making a few changes this year and the WWW for Burning Seed 2017 will be bigger (literally) and better than ever!
An event can happen anywhere, anytime at Burning Seed — except during the Welcome to Country ceremony that officially opens the Burning Seed event. Maybe you'll run a stargazing group, a meditation space, a yoga session unicorn choir or lead a debate on the acting abilities of Nicholas Cage. Whatever you decide to do, the more people that know about it the better - right? That's where our WWW guide comes in!
Theme Camps are the most popular venues, but if you are not affiliated with one or you are looking for a different space, there are more ways to spread the love.
- Go free range by taking your event on the road or using an open space.
- Hold your event at Centre Camp, our central creative hub space. Applications for this must be made directly to Centre Camp. If your event is approved to run at Centre Camp, those lovely folks will submit your event to the WWW. For Centre Camp events please do not register below.
- Speak with other Theme Camps, see if they will host an event for you. Check out the various Facebook groups and get involved.
What, Where, When Guide - Key Info
We have learned from last year and listened to your feedback. If you would like to submit events for our WWW, please read the below key info first to ensure this runs as smoothly as possible for all involved.
Event submissions are open from Friday 14th July at 10am and will close on Friday 25th August at 5pm. In order to not cause our printers (and us!) a great deal of headaches, we need to be strict with the closing date. Events received after this date will not make it into the WWW, but you can still host your event, renegade style!
Ways to submit your events
Last year we introduced an online Google form for event submission. This worked well as the online form can be filled out from any type of device including mobile phones and tablets. However, this was not so great for theme camps who were submitting a large number of events. To improve this for 2017 you will have two choices:
Google Form - the form has been updated to be much more user friendly and is perfect for those entering a small number of events. You can enter up to 10 events at a time using the form.
Excel Template - those with a larger number of events (more than 10) should use a spreadsheet/template. You will find a download link to a spreadsheet within the Google form itself.
It’s your choice which method you would like to use and both will have limits on the number of characters that can be used in event descriptions. Full instructions of how to use both methods are contained in the form at the event submission link below.
Bigger is better!
This year we are moving from an a6 sized publication to a5. While the a6 size was pocked sized and therefore quite handy, it meant that we had to chop out a fair bit of text and have a really small font size. It was hard work to squeeze all of the info in the maximum number of pages. By moving to an a6 sized guide we are able to increase the font size, making the guide easier for all.
As with last year you will have a 250 character count for event descriptions - but remember, this is a maximum. Help us and your fellow burners by making event descriptions short, sweet and to the point!
Attention to detail!
Help us get the guide organised by paying attention to the details you provide. We cannot stress this enough! This includes event days and times (especially correctly selecting AM and PM), typos and proof reading. It’s fine if you want your breakfast to be listed at 9pm, but you may not have many burners turn up. Help us help you!
Theme camps - time to get organised
Talk to your theme camp members, co-hosts of events or even your cat (if you wish). If you are submitting events as a theme camp, work out who is going to submit what. Last year we received duplicate events from multiple people within a camp, so it’s a good idea to nominate one person from your camp to do this. Work together!
