Welcome to Campfire Convention.  After many months spent building the site, we are launching our social network and to starting the discussion on what we can do to make a difference.                                 

The heart of the Campfire experience will revolves around our wide-ranging website and social network. The online experience will revolve around our Profile pages and associated Portfolio feature, our Projects and our 16 Guilds, organised into three groups – Creative, Leisure and Tools For Life. Each one has the potential to develop its own editorial voice at a time when so much mainstream media primarily reflects the vested interests of its owners. We aim to develop a truly independent voice, untainted by the commercial pressures associated with chasing advertising and page click bait. 

Campfire will build its own world around everyone’s input and participation. We are sparking the tinder and watching what happens from here. Anything is possible! We’d like to extend a warm welcome around the Campfire circle, here or at one of our events.
