Camp Fires

Camp Fires is an occasional programme of public lectures and seminars.

It includes events in partnership with existing organisations in the southern Lake District, usually in co-ordination with Temporary Moorings exhibitions.

What’s happening in Camp Fires and how can I help?

  • Our first series of Camp Fire events took place alongside Imagination and Reality, at Brantwood and at Abbot Hall, in Kendal, in 2012. We have held occasional events since and are currently exploring options for further events in 2017.
  • The News section of the website, and our Facebook and Twitter links, contains details of past events and future plans.
