Last year the Parents Playground offered a kid free zone + workshops (erotic collaborative massage, yoga, cacao ceremonies etc). We were often packed and had to spill out onto the grass at the back (not ideal!)- this dream is to make an awning to expand!
Last year the Parents Playground was born. Just a kids free tipi located in Kidscamp. What we didn't expect was quite how necessary and WANTED this space was. Basically the Parents Playground has now become its own camp and with the TIPI only fitting around 15 people comfortably we are wishing to expand!
ITs not to say that using the space around the outside of the Tipi is restricted but when you have over 40 beautiful people engaging in a 6 handed erotic massage, spilling outside is not always ideal (esp. not maybe in Kidsville).
That aside, it leaves us with two options. One is to build a second Tipi that can be wedded to the first opening up the space with a between area. Or slightly easier for this year to erect a special awning that has fold down sides to create a larger circumference. This would need around 25sq meters of extra canvas and 8 poles, ideally extra flooring to go and décor too.
Basically lets try and give as many parents restbite as possible, give non parents the chance to run workshops and join any sessions and not have to turn people away this year!!!
AS part of KIDSVILLE, we the Parents Playground, run a kids free Temple Tipi, workshops and sessions to bring more of Borderland to members who are often seen running around after their responsibilities. Open to all Borderlings, our terrain is to not only create a lively, nurturing space but also to inquire into the future generations of Burns and how the creativity and celebrations connect with the development of raising awesome kids.
Lost or forgotton item (towels/wristbands/sunglasses/cup etc) will be placed by the door in a box for collection. Anything left over at the end of the festival will be combined with the Kidscamp moop for recycling

Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
