A day at Monopol full of workshops, seminars, art and games preparing us for our wonderful Kiez Burn.
If we can do these then Kiez Burn will be a better Burn:
Ranger Training (for all)
Welfare Training (for all)
Principles Discussion Panels
How to LNT
Conflict Escalation Training
If we do these then you will have a better Kiez Burn
Yoga, Meditation & Breathwork
The principles of building a safe structure
How to source materials
How to Advice Process
Camp Kitchen group discussion - skills and resource sharing
How to hand in receipts for your dreams
Meet the Board
Meet the Korg
And much, much more!!!
What do we have?
A secured location (an old distillery) with plenty of space for everyone to attend at no cost
5-7 separated indoor locations
3 covered outdoor areas
Loads more outdoor space
A community of badasses that can’t wait to get together, co-create and share knowledge
What do we need?
Some funding from Kiez Burn e.V. in order to secure material costs and some Art
3000€ would more than suffice)
The aforementioned community of badasses that can’t wait to get together, co-create and share knowledge to get together, co-create and share knowledge
We need workshop hosts. Especially if you are interested in hosting any of the topics listed above
We need realizers to use this as an opportunity to educate and train the community
We need the korg to use this as an opportunity to share knowledge and touch base with new members
We would like for the community to see how awesome the Board is, and how cool being on the board is. If there’s one thing a burner should aspire to, it’s being on the board. Did I mention boardies are cool? And sexy. You should try it out!
What can you do?
This is where you can show off your Communal Effort, Participation & Radical Self-Reliance.
Take the initiative and grab a role or workshop. Dive right in, you don’t need permission (but consent is very sexy!)
Join the discord chat. Head to Satellite Events - > Kiez Burn Unconference (KBU)
Check for open roles & shifts that may need filling
Workshop Space Organiser (each space will need someone to set it up and ensure it’s read to rock)
Transportation Lead + Transporter (definitely better as a 2 person role)
Event Rangers (which could also be the official Ranger onboarding)
Find slots to put in your workshop, seminar, game or whatever.
This should be a blast. If you love what we're doing then don't forget to smash that Like button and hit Subscribe to get all the updates from your boi Professor Kaos!

Should Camps be invited to fundraise at KiezKon? Closed Sun 29 May 2022 9:00PM
Initially, the event was intended to be solidly built on the 11 principles of Kiez Burn.
It has been however, proposed in the last orga meeting to increase participation, and communal effort, by inviting camps to fundraise at the event, by selling food and drinks.
There will otherwise be no food or drinks available on site, and self-reliance was the expectation.
I would like to experiment with a little direct democracy on this topic, and offer our communities Talk contingent the opportunity to make the decision:
To commodify, or decommodify, that is this question!
The KiezKon Timetable (you may need to manually head to June 4th)
The KiezKon Mastersheet (we still have open roles if you wanna help out!)
|Results||Option||% of points||Voters|
||Let the Camps Fundraise!||60.9%||14|
||Keep decommodification, no money on site!||30.4%||7|
||Abstain (I'm too old for this shit)||8.7%||2|

I found not having money on the event to be a unique experience that sets it off from festivals. I find that not using money embraces gifting.

I cannot choose the second option, as it uses Decommodification, when the principle being breached here is No Commerce 🤓
Also, while this applies to the Kiez Burn event, it has not really been enforced in other events, which are aimed to increase Participation & Community. These principles need more of a push than No Commerce, camps need $$$ to blow our minds during the burn, and the people need to eat & drink at KiezKon, sooooo 🙂

Let them be able to ask for donations instead of payment, for what they are bringing? This way it’s still no commerce but instead funding can be gifted back to the community (aka the camps).

Ja, why not? Otherwise, we'll leave the Kon to get out food and drinks and give someone else a profit...

Ideally there would be a table with food and drinks gifted by the community. If there isn't, it should be a point of inspiration for future years to improve towards. There are plenty of opportunities for camps to reliantly fundraise.
