Wild Conference was a series of talks, presentations, activities and discussions in a little tented village built around a camp fire designed for a participating live audience of 450, commissioned by A.C.E., Arts Council England. A different type of space designed to create new thoughts. All in the grounds of a publicly-owned former stately home in Leeds. A lot of the activity was concurrent- talks happened simultaneously in different tents. Everyone was given a set of headphones and a Slung Low receiver that allowed you to switch between any of the speakers at any point.
In the evening of the 4th after dinner there was an outdoor cabaret around the bonfire. There was a bar. There was cocktails. There was food as well of course! The food was a mix of street food, a bbq and packed lunches. There was a creche on site too.
