  • Summary

    The Commie Cosmic CarPets are back from Inner Space and are cranking up the engine on the Vostok Space Racer!

    Join our space programme for a fairer, funny and more cosmic Borderland.
    One small step for man, one giant leap for manatee kind!

    Full description of the concept

    The Commie Cosmic CarPets left the confines of their keepers on Earth eons ago and are back with their Space programme to guide Borderlings on their journey to Inner Space. But we need your help to launch the Vostok Space Racer!

    The programme is tough, but tantalizing. Games such as Cat-and-string-theory, Drop It Laika It’s Hot, and The Farms Race will be played throughout the week. As the Borderings are trained into fully fledged catmonauts, we will host a grand celebration to mark the momentous occasion.

    Music, immersive theatre, a ride around on the Space Racer, and Doggy Disco music from our solar sound system! These CarPets will fly with you through Borderlands delivering joy, inspiration, dance, doggy treats, litter boxes, music, training, and more sticks than that you can throw a stick at.

    We’ve already started the preliminaries by holding spectacular feedings and festivities (Be Nice Club and CCCParties) in lovely London to make sure we can slingshot ourselves through to Borderlands - but as much as that will get us there, we need to get there in style… and a rocket, not just a van. The grant we get will go into converting a plain van into one of the most saucy space sailers the Borderland-sand-sea has ever seen.

    Join the space programme to accelerate your acceleration to freedom and Inner Space.

    Any hands, minds, eyes, feet, or thoughts in London will be happily accepted into our open pet pen to help get Vostok off the launchpad, and the more catmonauts me recruit throughout the week, the more there are to recruit others!

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    While at Borderland the theatre of the show will 100% be at the whim of the Borderlings.

    We have also found some fellow Space borderlings who we should definitely try to team up with.

    If anyone would also like to use the vehicle while there for some collaboration, or to run their own things - we would love that!

    We are sourcing a van and sound system from within our local community in London (Hackney Wick) - which we will use fundraised money to buy. For the grant we're applying for, it will mainly be used for the modifications and safety precautions applied to the van. This will be: * LED Lighting system to cover the whole van * Generator for the sound system * Creating and welding the metal structure that will create the shape of the rocket The latter we will be sourcing the materials over the next few weeks so we can go more into detail about it then. The van itself is something we hope to keep using post-borderland, and will definitely be up for any collaborations within the community, and also allowing others to use it.

    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? Nope

    • Will there be light? So many lights! The Space Racer will be lit up, and use it's lights when moving at night.

    • Safety implications When diving around, the Vostok Space Racer will always have a minimum of 2 drivers and 4 ushers around to make sure that we will be clear of Borderlings. The car itself will have gone through all the legal and safety checks in the UK. Any modifications are mainly aesthetic, so will not be building any load baring parts. The Space Racer will never be filled above the loading capacity stated on the vehicle. If moving at night, we will be completely visible with an array of lighting.

    • What is your audio footprint? We will have a solar sound system on the Space Racer.
