A few barrels of fire to drive the cold away at night and to spark interesting conversations with old and new friends.
Wandering through the chilly night you see some light in the distance and hear the soft sound of conversation. Coming closer you find a group of people chatting away around an inviting barrel of fire. Everyone is too caught up in conversation to notice that the fire is fading. You see a pile of firewood and you feed a few logs to the fire. People look up, smile and thank you. You take the opportunity to join the conversation and get some warmth back in your hands.
The concept here is simple. I buy a few metal barrels and cut them and pierce them to make safe fireplaces that wont damage the land. Then I buy a few cubic metres of firewood and some tarp to cover it. I rent a trailer to bring it on site, and then again to remove the barrels unless we can store them for next year.
Additionally I need to procure some buckets to have water available for safety. Should the wind pick up we need to kill the fires.
Einar, Caroline Bergmann, Andreas Engholm and a few more I hope.
Ashes. Either collect and bring with us or leave somewhere among the bushes if that's allowed.
The barrels will be removed unless we can store them for next year.
Help us find good placements! Help us figure out fire safety and regulations!
Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.
