Sunrise Off Grid Camp
Sunrise goes Off-Grid from 20th-23rd August 2009 on a gorgeous organic site in Somerset. This new camp is a deep exploration of community living, creativity and consciousness, with hands-on activities, talks, workshops, performance, music, art and celebration.
The event will be participatory and family focused, exploring the emergent culture of environmental awareness and the ways in which everyone can create a sustainable future together. Times are changing and knowledge is growing of the human impact on the natural world and upon each other. Off-grid will explore humanities potential to improve the lives of everyone on this planet.
“Creating a festival is like building and servicing a small town, then taking it down again, all in the space of a month. In the process we can explore solutions that can be applied in our everyday lives and throughout the world. For this event we will be moving away from using bio diesel generators, and working on micro generation of power from solar, wind, cycle and possibly hydro power, and aiming to use that power really efficiently”, said Dan Hurring, Sunrise Spokesperson.
Off Grid is about creating a space for empowerment, where festival goers will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience on the steps that need to be taken to increase energy efficiency. There will be lots of practical information, from how to make a boiler use less fuel to installing a wind generator. Whether the dream is an inner city vegetable patch or living on the land, Off Grid will be a showcase of what is possible and available to everyone, no matter what their lifestyles.
As a family focused event Off Grid will have loads of activities for children, with a kids’ village and fun workshops especially tailored for them on how they can help their families help the environment. They are the ones who will inherit the planet and the knowledge and information on how to look after it is something that can be given to them right now.
“We are really excited about Off-Grid, and are looking forward to an event that is inspiring, fun and radical, where we can all journey together into a Greener future. So bring along the whole family to eat from nature, sit in ceremony, design the future, walk on hot coals and move beyond your perceived limits. It’s an opportunity to marvel at earth’s mysteries, Rebirth your wild side, or just relax and soak up that famous Sunrise vibe of love, celebration and joy”.
Off-grid will be powered by clean, renewable energy, with site wide organic food and drink, compostable packaging, plates and cutlery, and numerous other initiatives making this the Greenest event of the year. Sunrise Off Grid is run by a Community Interest Company, CIC’s invest their profits back into the community, building a world beyond monetary profit.

We are coming to the End of our Age.
With environmental and economic disaster hovering, with resources running low and our peoples locked into seemingly endless war and conflict, apparently unable to overcome the barriers of national interest, racism, sexism and other base things, the time has come to embrace solutions.
Whether its the End of the Age of Oil or the End of Time itself, our duty as stewards of Planet Earth is to consciously step forward into a new world, forging the future and reconnecting with our Home.
We are the architects of our realities and we are responsible for shaping our worlds!
