The Heavenly Giving Chair
11 July 2016 Jim Harrison,
At Heavenly we are big fans of the Do Lectures. Do Wales 2016 takes place at the Do Farm in a small clever country called Wales.
DO Lectures was born in 2008, it is in an inexplicable cross section between a festival and a conference. There are no name badges, no bad coffee and impersonal, draughty lecture halls. Instead, an intimate number of speakers and attendees gather under canvas on the west coast of Wales and share the whole three day experience as a community. They eat together, camp together, share a beer around a fire as the sun goes down together.
The idea is a simple one. That people who Do things, can inspire the rest of us to go and Do things too. So each year, The Do Lectures invite a set of people to come and tell us what they Do.
This year Heavenly is sponsoring the Giving Chair. An opportunity for someone to attend who otherwise would not be able to make it. The recipient of the Heavenly Giving Chair for 2016 will be Charlotte Lucas she is a teacher and also co-owns a Forest School Nursery in Somerset. (www.freerangers.org.uk). It looks like a really cool place.
Charlotte will create a video or picture diary of the event and come back to Heavenly to tell us all about it. When she does we’ll tell you about it.
