Calling ECO-ACTIVISTS, SELF-BUILDERS, DIGGERS and DREAMERS, TIN-VILLAGERS and OFF-GRID ENGINEERS everywhere.
Will you be available from 8th – 18th August 2014?
Then welcome to Building Man!
In 2014 this non-profit self-build event will invite participants to engage in the co-creation of Thoulstone Park‘s emerging community hub and events space in Wiltshire.
So if you enjoy a good adventure, then join us in this open-ended experiment with new ways of being!
Building Man is a six day co-creative design and build process, facilitating Do-It-Yourself festival-making solutions and workshop-led skills building.
Our mission – if we choose to accept it – is the delivery of a multi-venue Tin Village events space, including a semi-permanent open-air stage and field kitchen complete with cob oven, 12volt solar power and rocket stove installations.
Plus, Building Man will support the retro-fitting of existing on-site structures, to be converted into workshops, a site office, community kitchen and venue.
Check out and feedback on an outline design brief and collaborative budget here.
Buildng Man participants will contribute a £110 fee, which includes a ten day food pass and camping, plus full access to Off Grid Festival.
A handful of concessions remain available for workshop facilitators and experienced site crew.
Off Grid is an outstanding networking and learning opportunity, including a modular course in practical sustainability supported by Shift Bristol.
A full power four day convergence of like minded people and projects, with children under 12 completely FREE.
Longer-term, Building Man is an emerging non-profit, events-based platform for self-building and community-led developments.
We recognise the potential of temporary event infrastructures where everything is possible, which hold space for re-imagination as we build a new culture!
Building Man is developing in close collaboration with Community Juice, an exciting new development company based in the South West.
