PLAYFORMS

Register to host a Playform!

Registration closes May 1, 2017

We need YOU and YOUR SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, and IDEAS for Ignite!

In 2013, we introduced a concept called “Playforms” to Ignite and it was a huge success!  We need you to help us keep this community building concept moving forward!  Playforms are one of the many things that make Ignite! such a unique experience and what earns it the title of “Learn and Burn”

A Playform is a platform for playful learning; a cool way for our community members to come together and share knowledge, experiences, skills, and ideas. Playforms can be an art form or craft you’d like to share, a skill you’ve developed, experiences with burns you think others would find valuable, or just a time to discuss a topic you love. Do you have something to share with our community? Do you have a special skill (camp cooking, energy work, wire wrapping) you think others would benefit from learning? Know how to do something really useful, artistic, engaging, or just plain cool (flow arts, massage for dummies, first aid, puppetry)? Want to discuss a burn-related topic (consent, how to build and plan a theme camp, volunteerism)? Most importantly, are you willing to teach this skill/facilitate discussion of this topic for others?  If so, you sound like a perfect Playform host!

Examples of past Playforms include:  Leaving Generators Behind, Soapmaking, Burn Leadership without Burnout, Proper Cooler Packing and Food Storage for Burners, Hooping for Kids, Consent, Begintermediate Poi, and Special Effects Makeup

If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected]

This space and discussion is specifically shaped for those who at some point have held genuine belief in Christianity, particularly in fundamentalist, Bible-literalist, harshly-structured sects.
Themes to think about: how has christianity shaped you as a person? Was there a moment you lost faith or can trace as the beginning of the end? What are tactics you have learned for coping with your change in world view? What are some of the dark places this has led you? If you've gotten through some of the "valleys", what was that process like? What does healing look like, feel like, for your journey? How has family affected or been involved? What kinds of support have you gathered?
Each person's journey is different, but we find enrichment and healing in common threads and experience.
