We are building a member-led online social network, free of advertising and algorithms, already putting on regular face-to-face events. We believe that we have potential to evolve the way we do social networking as well as stepping up and actively facilitating change at local level.

The Campfire concept has been devised and is led by social entrepreneur @Pete Lawrence, the founder of the successful Cooking Vinyl record label and Big Chill festivals. The Big Chill was well known for its thriving and proactive online community before the current mainstream social networks were established.

Pete says "What are we aiming for? Obviously a thriving community, a vibrant website and exciting events, but our vision can extend a lot wider. We can play our part in social change, in helping create a fairer society and in empowering our own membership, both individually and collectively by providing an environment where ideas can lead to inspiration, debate can lead to determination, co-creativity can lead to collaboration and realisation, which in turn can lead to recognition, confidence and hopefully financial rewards too."

We encourage you to join fellow members of the Campfire network where you can create your own Profile, showcase your creative activities, join common interest Guilds, create solo or collaborative Projects, post to our site magazine The Bugle and become an active member of a Beacon and keep the conversation going. 

Imagine the cumulative effect of our collective calls to action. Together we are building something that can make a difference.
