Beautiful Nestlings!

Hope you’re all having a splendid week. We’ve got more spills and thrills for you in this week’s Nest News:

Contents for this week:

Community Meeting Details

So excited to be seeing so many of you at our Community Meeting. If you don’t know anything about it, check the Facebook event page and come along and share your thoughts, ideas and desires about YOUR Nest.

We are – as aaalllways – on the look out for people to support the facilitation of the meeting. We would LOVE people to get involved with the following areas. It’s not a community meeting without your community contributions!

Greeters. Exactly as it sounds: meeting folks at the door, and especially making sure first time Burners/Nestlings are welcomed. If you have those magical powers, make yourselves known.

Décor.  for sure it’s a Burn event without decor, but honestly it’s more fun with it. Think throws, cushions, and the decor that makes a space super tasty to be in. Can you help make our Community Meeting look and feel delightful?

Tea & refreshments.  Is there a theme camp willing to host the tea nook? You can offer whatever hot/cold beverages you can bring, and serve them however your theme camp might at Nest…? Could be great practice for Nest Week.

Transport. We’re bringing mattresses so people can opt to sit/sprawl on the floor while we chat. Can you help transport them from NW10 to Waterloo (and back again)?

Tranquillity space hosts. Sometimes, being around people is a bit much. Or maybe you need time to process a feeling, or focus on an idea. We’re looking for a couple of folks to host a space for such noble silence.

Build and Strike Crew. You know the drill. LNT, and all that. Let’s be sterling guests at The Living Space!

If you’re a newbie, this is the perfect way to get to know your fellow Nestlings, so don’t be shy – we would love to see you volunteer.

Art Grant Applications

For all you budding Duchamps, Emins and Hirsts, on 11 December we will be opening the first cycle of our Art Grant applications.

So start thinking about what you would like to make, do and contribute NOW!

Further details will be coming in our next Nest News.

New Site

Haha! You thought we meant our new location didn’t you?! Well, no – we mean our fantabulous new WEBSITE! 

Yes, that’s right our amazing Technical Nesters have been slaving away over a hot computer to bring us a brand new website platform… some things might look the same and some different, but one thing is fo sho, it will give us a much better centralised hub for all the information you will need to navigate your metaphoric journey to Nest, in one cosmic place.

Still the same URL and location, but with a different feel much more aligned to what you have all asked for. Your wish is our command!

Community meeting and Early bird memberships

By | Community, Memberships | No Comments

Hello, hello!

And welcome to this fortnight’s Nest News! Well, after the excitement of last Nest News, I bet you’re all worried that this one will be a damp squib when you’ve had fireworks all week.

But sit tight my fluffy darlings, because there’s plenty of the good stuff for you right here!

Contents for this week:

Community Meeting: You, and me, and everybody

As we always say – Nest is run and created by its participants. Participation from all of you sexy beasts is absolutely KEY to Nest being as amazing as it is, and making it better than ever.

So between that and the fact that we miss all your faces, we’ve scheduled an essential Community Meeting! Whoop! Deets as follows…

When?

Sunday 10 December
14:00.  (That’s 2 of the clock in the PM!)

Where?

Living Space, Waterloo
1 Coral St, Lambeth, London SE1 7BE

Get there nice and early, hippies, because there’s a lot to get through. And then afterwards, we can have gin. Hoorah!

Profiling

This can only be your friendly announcement that you will be able to register your Nest Profile from 13 November. Oooohhhhh!

That can only mean one thing…

Cheap, cheap, cheap – said the Super Early Bird!

In case you’ve forgotten (and if you have, how very dare you?!) Super Early Bird memberships are open for purchase on 12:00 GMT – 24 November! That’s right – just after pay day. How convenient!!!

Put it in your diary NOW!

Our New Facebook group

We’ve realised it’s actually quite difficult for Nestlings to navigate needs, requests and interactions on our Facebook Page, so we have set up a Burning Nest Community Group on Facebook, where you can share stories and talk about how wonderful we all are. Awwwhhh.

Please remember that we all ascribe to the Nest principles and we are guided by them in our interactions with each other, including those online. Inclusion, civic responsibility and gifting are as important as self expression.

There will be some guidelines coming out for you all to reference if you’re wondering and should you ever be puzzled.

Right, that’s your lot. I’m off to make new wings for Decom… oh yes DECOM! And AfterParty!! Much excite!! I’ll be there with a good few of the Core Team. We’ll be in attendance at the chat on Participation at midnight (you know how we feel about Participation!) and we’d love to see you – come and get a consensual hug!

If you’re not Decomming we’ll be at Burning Pub on the following Thursday. And the Community Meeting after that… bloomin’ ‘eck you’re going to be sick of the sight of us by Christmas!

Lots and lots of love,
Siren
