  • Summary

    The WELFARE TENT offers a space of trust so that people who are going through a challenging time can find grounding, calmness and acceptance. To make WELFARE warm & inviting there is a need for decoration, lights, tea, snacks & safety equipment.

    Full description of the concept

    This will transform the dark and cold Yurt into a warm, well lit, inviting welfare space that let's people find grounding, accepting and trust in order to overcome any challenging issue they may be dealing with. The idea is to have comfortable seating, minimal noise pollution, a rotating selection of tea servings, and basic comforts.

    Supplies Include:
    A large Yurt, min 50m2
    Tapestries and Deco
    Rugs, Pillows, Blankets, matrecess and Seating
    Gas heating
    Tea and Supplies
    Basic drawing supplies and cards

    Why is Welfare important?
    Because it's OK to ask for help when you are emotionally struggling, and there can be so many reasons for that. Burn events are highly intensified events that can lead to distress, whether you are feeling lonely, sad, confused, sleep deprived, took too much of this/that, struggling with your partner/friends or simply overwhelmed by everything and need to relax for a bit! Welfare will provide a safe and sober space for you to return to your center and also integrate your moment of difficulty so hopefully you can grow from it and return to the rest of the event in a better shape, with more tools for the near and far future.
