(Closed)Do we want to grow the Kiez Burn population in 2022?
Update: proposal is cancelled reasons are in the outcome of the poll at the bottom
this discussion will be open until 7.02.2022 and just then I will make a final poll which will be online for 5 days ( 12.02.2022 ). With this decision in place, tickets can move forward as well as the Korg having some certainly around the size of the event by the date of their next meeting (17.02.22) Hi all, I am Vero. Second-year in the Board of the e.V, Korg 2021. On this thread, I propose AND I seek advice to decide if we want more Kiez burners on the playa or if we are okay with the small villa. Deadline 12th of February 2022
Information gathered before posting
I have taken into consideration some previous discussions around Kiez Burn population growth, to now open it again and decide whether we want to have another 1100 people event this year, or if we want to grow.
On this thread we discussed tickets prices, Kiez Burn popularity, freecampers cap and how can we approach more organic growth.
I have also taken the results of the census 2021
( I've got to say I am surprised to see a 34% of new burners, since the last time I checked the results were 22% )
I have been present at the Kiez Burn retrospective in 2021 and have taken into consideration the challenges in 2021 in regards to LNT and strike, while we seem to have some lessons learned there.
Kiez Burn population growth thread from 2020 where we decided to grow on a 10% ( from 1000 to 1100)

This will be the 5th Kiez Burn event in history.
Since 2019, we have been planning a 1000-1100 participants event. While I am aware that we all as a community need to put in work to grow in a healthy and organic way, I believe it would possibly be a positive turn of events if we had more participants, therefore more tickets and liquidity to have more art on the playa (btw tickets price could be raised on a 20% - 30% not in this discussion).
It is my wish to make dreamers feel Kiez Burn welcomes their projects instead of the contrary. I believe that by having more population, and more money for art, in combination with a good tickets sales strategy that will somehow keep us away from the first come first served and, a cool art funding tool as it has been semi thought through and shared on this thread (Rethinking Dreams) we could have a very sweet burn. 🤗
My proposal is to grow Kiez Burn population on a 25% ( off an 1100 participants cap we already had in place since the last advice process. In 2021 we had 1000 participants which had to do with pandemic restrictions) After collecting input from those who participated in this thread, I reconsider my previous proposal and suggest a 10% growth. We seem to feel more on the safe side when growing in small bits, giving time and space to community members to gain experience and participate more, in addition to all concerns in regards to site planning. Having a cap on 1200 participants seems to be reasonable.
What are the advantages of this proposal (relative to the current situation and/or counter-proposals)
As I see it, we could expand the community, welcome new inhabitants.
What are the disadvantages of this proposal (relative to the current situation and/or counter-proposals)
will be all a disaster? who knows!!!
Will the site be too crowded? - Need input from site management

will we have to pay for extra toilets? what is the capacity cap for Freiland?
Freiland gave us some numbers for their permit application in 2020 (1300 attendants planned). In terms of requirements most numbers stayed the same (security, medical service) – apart from more sanitary facilities (25 toilets, 10 Urinals – in 2021 we had ca. 20). With 1500 attendants, numbers can be higher and we'll have to check with the Amt...
