  • Summary

    Borderland is growing in members as well as excellence, but fear not! The Clowns will keep up. This year we’re planning a badass HQ, extra silly shit and plenty of energy for our hardworking, motley crew of pranksters.

    Full description of yer concept

    We're creating a happy jail for joyful detainment and a colourful home for lost Borderlings and our Crazy Clowns. We’re extending the shaded area to make sure you’re protected during the Very Official Training and Chilling. We’re creating a small set of flip cards so Clowns can carry the protocols around - we got yo’ backs. And we’re getting super cosy with cushions and Soft Stuff for those long and chilly graveyard shifts where everyone’s happy and no one needs us, but stay awake we do, just in case… ;)

    All of this is to say: we need some extra cash please.

    Summary of everything we so desire:

    Extension of the clown tent, 7100DKK:
    -tarp & flooring

    Decoration of the clown tent, 2900DKK
    -fabrics, signs & lights

    Build materials & tools, 2200 DKK
    -screws, gaffa tape, extension cords, tools,..
    -Firewood & fire barrel (if there's no fire ban)

    Clown fuel to keep the clowns going strong, hydrated & coffeinated, 3200 DKK
    -hot drinks
    -sweet, fruity & savory treats
    -Infrastructure to prepare hot drinks & hold water

    Costumes & Clown props, 1200 DKK
    -red noses
    -secret swag
    -funny gadgets (clipboards, fines, animal shaped water guns,...)
    -happy jail

    Transportation 500 DKK
    -Gas for 4-5 round trips copenhagen-borderland or malmø-cph/borderland
    -Potentially bridge toll

    Total Requested: 17100 DKK
    Minimum required: 1460 DKK if we don't buy the soft jigsaw foam floor tiles (which we really want to make it cosy for Clowns and Borderlings alike!)

    [Final total will likely reduce slightly, as we hope there may be clown loans or donations, or if there is a fire ban and we can't have a burn barrel, transport ends up being cheaper, etc.]

    About the crew / artist

    We are not professionals, nor are we rangers - we are clowns!

    The Clown Police does not only exist to prevent bad things from happening - but to increase the chance of good things happening. More than a community safety force, it is a proactive community engagement force, that promotes a sense of caretaking and social responsibility from and within the community itself. And whilst the clown police may be trained in the emergency protocols, they're also professional pranksters - join us!

    Moop plan (matter out of place)

    Clowns will be fully inducted into the importance of LNT/MOOP sweeps during the very serious training. Clowns are encouraged to be self-reliant mofos and take their shit away with them. That said, we know we’re not perfect so bin bags will be available as well as recycling containers for daily MOOP sweeps in the HQ.
