Share Campfire - October 2017

Event Details

Gather round the campfire.

A Campfire is like a family concert. A performance created by artists and audiences to celebrate, share knowledge and create lasting community connections.

It was around the campfire that we first marked significant events. We told stories, danced, drew pictures in the sand, and sang about the things we needed to understand. We created rituals to help us build knowledge and share wisdom. And by doing so, we thrived as a community.

Each Campfire is built from the contributions of the people who turn up. You can be a generous audience or you can bring something along to share.

When: Saturday October 7th 2017. (Generally the first Saturday of the month.)  

Time: 
Doors open 6:30pm
6:30 – 7:15pm – Boat folding, practice your piece, finishing touches to the space.
7:15pm – We are getting ready to roll
7:30pm – We begin (on the dot)
10pm – Official finish
10pm – till later on – (sometimes people hang around and have a jam, sometimes they don’t…both are fine)

Where: Midnightsky Studio 2. 101 Victoria Street in Fitzroy (very close to the corner of Brunswick street and Johnston Street. Not Victoria Parade))

How much: New pricing strategy! Unfortunately the current method doesn't quite work for accounting purposes (When I collect less donations than I sell tickets I end up topping up the difference so that the tax department is happy...it's complex...but apparently that's how it works!)
At September's Campfire we all talked about it and decided on the following approach.
Tickets will scale from $5 - $50 + (if you are feeling super generous). The ticket will automatically be donated to charity (so no money back at the door). We will all still decide together which charity.

I recommend you choose the amount you pay based on two questions:

1 - What amount would be enough to make me feel committed and actually turn up even if I am having a bad hair day that day?

2 - How much would I like to give away to charity this month?

In the future I think we may need to consider taking a portion of each ticket to help cover cost of the space. I am clear that when I run a Campfire at Midnightsky studio I don't want any income. There are other ways people can support me as an artist. The first and most important is to join my mailing list at lukehockley.com.au - just saying.

Food - You should eat dinner before you come. BYO drinks and snacks and cake - We have a break half way and people tend to bring snacks to throw on the table and share. Some people have even baked us a cake. We have tea and coffee and water. BYO everything else!

Performing - Your first and most important job is to come along and enjoy the evening. Everyone is welcome to get up and do something (tell a story, sing a song, play an instrument, dance, share a piece of visual art...). Probably the kindest most supportive audience you have ever met...so the stage is yours if you would like it. The amazing Dan Robertson will be there on the piano. So if you have a favourite song up your sleeve we can probably piece it together on the night.

A small note on group activities...the focus for Campfire is to give you an opportunity to perform or be in the audience. So activities that require the group to do something aren't on the menu. These kinds of things can be amazing...if you are in the mood. If you aren't in the mood then people can feel 'put on the spot' and that is the opposite of what we are doing at Campfire. So if you have something to share you can invite people to join in (like sing a long) but there should always be a role for the audience and if no one joins your performance should be ok to go along regardless. If you have something you would like to do that you need some support with I am (Luke) always available to chat with you and grab a couple of confident performers to support you. We love that!
