Camp Coming Home

The Homies

  • Summary

    As I was wandering alone at night in the darkness, surrounded by the pulsating music and blurry silhouettes of people in the distance, I found myself looking for a home.
    And then, I remembered my Key…🗝

    Full description of the concept

    Coming Home Camp provides a home for every Borderling and invites you to engage in any of our daily workshops of arts, crafts, up-cycling, yoga, breath-work, poetry, singing etc. Be it during the day or the night, you can also come here to, relax, drink a cup of tea and hang out with us. You are welcome to be part of our dreamy family whenever you feel like “going back Home” during an intense festival week!

    Our intention is to create a domed-orangery with a porch, an outdoor kitchen equipped with a clay oven, and a little garden. The dome, porch and kitchen will host various activities and workshops during the week, and are made for You! Once you pass the Garden Gate the Coming Home Family will welcome and greet you with tea, cookies, and a special trinket. Here, you will be loved and accepted as you are - by the Homies but also by yourself!!

    Everyday is a new day in the Dome-Home, filled with different characters of the Family. A Mom will be there. A Dad also. The Auntie is also around, as well as Grandpa. No matter who's at home, you're always welcome just as you are. As the family member you always dreamt to be.

    - Meet your family members, costumed family constellation play

    - Costumes: we will host a Tarot Character Playing workshop inspired by role play with family constellations which will be open to all Borderlings. - Consumables: we will host different workshops, a food party, and will provide cakes/cookies as part of our "welcoming ceremony" to all Borderlings.. The food will not replace our Camp meal and they will be able to bring some stuff back (beauty products, notebooks, jewellery, etc.) from the workshops they will attend. - Valuable equipment: in order to create the space of our Terrace, we would need to create a flat surface/platform in order to host workshops such as capoeira, daily co-created yoga, and have a barrel organ

    What is this?

    Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. The Dreams Platform is a place where participants share their dreams.


    • Do you need electricity from the grid? How much in Watts? 4KWatts

    • Will there be light? The camp will be partially illuminated at night, meaning that the Dome will have some fairy lights and so on lit up so that people can still see when coming in and out. But no light installation.

    • Safety implications HAZARDS: - Electricity: Potential bad setup electrical solutions for the limited sound & light equipment with regard to rain etc. - Fire: Clay-oven - Wind : Exposition to strong winds for the Dome dome PRECAUTIONS: Electricity: Use of rainproof cables etc. Fire: Compulsory presence of a person from the camp when the oven will be on + fire extinguisher Wind: Dome will have to be stabilised in the ground + that's why we are favouring a non-exposed placement.

    • What is your audio footprint? We will be playing some music, mainly day-time, chill-out music/soundscapes except for some workshops and live barrel organ playing. Meaning we are not a sound camp but will still have some music.
