We're off to Electric Picnic!

Electric Picnic 2015

This year we are a newbie to the global green village. Come along to our heritage hub and bring your voice with you. Share your story with us and help us create a community soundscape. Have a go at our giant picnic puzzle and win a chance to stay in a special quirky place. 

We are at EP because we are interested in engaging with people in a more creative way on all things heritage.  You'll find us in the Global Green village . which is a pop-up ecovillage, a diverse community of cultural creatives, activists, artists, musicians, foodies, hackers, social entrepreneurs, environmental groups , brought together by Cultivate, the sustainability collective now based in Cloughjordan Ecovillage. Its known as the  CONSCIOUS HEARTBEAT OF THE ELECTRIC PICNIC. 

We will be doing two main things
1) the soundscape of place which we hope to create by recording peoples’ voices on what place, sense of place means to them.
2)The giant picnic puzzle — The theme for this is my place or yours. We want to look at connecting people with place by making a giant jigsaw...picnicers can illustrate (in a variety of ways)their idea of place on one of the jigsaw puzzle pieces and over the course of the weekend all the puzzle pieces will connect into one giant jigsaw/vision of place. Hopefully!! 

We will also be running a competition where you can win a weekend for two in any of the Landmark Trust quirky properties.
