|We can now proudly declare, applications for theme camps are open! If you’re planning to grace our primordial wonderland with your theme camps, please fill out the application form. This provides essential information for the core team to undertake all the boring stuff (placement, risk assessment etc.) that brings your vision to life and helps us to promote your camp and to grow the buzz around Nest 2019.
You can submit the form once you have filled in the basics, such as contact details, and return to add to it later but we need your complete form by 31st March (that’s a hard deadline hippies!). This is not a licence to be a last-minute merchant either; the earlier you submit, the quicker we can send you important need-to-know information that will help with planning your camp.
We have tried to make the form as clear and accessible as possible but if there’s anything you’re not 100% about, please contact our brilliant, tame and domesticated theme camp liaison Nick.
This year we want your BIG ideas.
Overzealous, grandiose and terrifyingly ambitious pipe dreams.
To support you, we have a bigger and better budget this year which we hope will get at least one ambitious project off the ground and into our Primordial Wonderland at Nest 2019.
We’d like to encourage people who have ideas that may be too big for them to help support another project if their own application isn’t successful. This way we hope to build a strong community and network of artists collaborating to create bigger and better things each year, together.
You can also find some helpful info and a few other resources on makerspaces which we hope you’ll find useful.
Of course, we still want to hear about any and all of the smaller, more intimate pieces you’ve been dreaming about: the ideas that make Nest the incredibly special space that we love.
This year we are holding two cycles of funding applications.
Cycle 1; 11th December to 31st January
Cycle 2; 1st February to 29th March
We ask anyone with big projects requesting in excess of £800 to apply during Cycle 1 so we can give you the go ahead with enough time for your creation to be realised.
Since we are encouraging BIGGER projects this year we will do our best to support you with hefty upfront costs such as large orders of materials.
