Off Grid Festival is back!
We’re super-excited to announce that, subject to a successful Crowdfunder campaign, Off-Grid Festival will be returning in 2016 with an all new event. The festival will take place from August 11th to 14th at the new Biophilia Project on Goffin Land near Exeter, Devon with a limited capacity of just 300 tickets!
Off Grid Festival ran for 6 years between 2009 and 2014 at venues in and around Somerset. It was visualized as a deep exploration of community living, creativity and consciousness; an intimate environment in which to share skills, trade knowledge, impart wisdom and make a difference. Four days out of the world to get into changing our world. We think of it as an experimental innovation lab for a new paradigm of economic, ecological and community thought, a radical gathering of empowered people making a difference in their lives and celebrating emergent culture.
Over the years the festival has educated and informed thousands of people about the skills and knowledge required for a low-impact ‘off-grid’ lifestyle. Off Grid is a hands-on, fully participatory experience. We recognise that each and every person who attends has something to share – be that knowledge, skills, wisdom, music or whatever else take their fancy. There’s nothing quite like it out there and we want it to return in 2016. We hope you do too!
Off-Grid 2016 is the essential event for all those interested in off-grid living and will feature:
The Off-Grid College * 3 Days of Inspiring Conferences and Forums * Crafts and Technology Village * Live Music * Organic, Locally-Produced Food and Drink * Gaia Dome * Wildwoods Camp * Organic Bar * Kids Area and Forest School * Therapies * Permaculture Gardens
Skills and Knowledge covered will include:
Eco-Build Skills * Traditional Crafts * DIY Technologies * Permaculture and Organic Food Production * Foraging * Natural Medicines * Waste Water Treatment * Composting * New Economics * Democracy and Politics * One Planet Living * Low Impact Law * Community Living * Cooperatives * Community Activism * Smallholding and much much more…
To help make this 2016 event happen, we’re launching a Crowdfund Campaign where you can support us by purchasing tickets at a range of prices; making larger investments or just offering a small supportive donation. We need to raise £6000 to ensure that the core costs of the event are covered and also to demonstrate that there is sufficient support available in terms of people wishing to attend the festival.
The Crowdfunder will be live here from Monday March 13th:-

Transition Network Conference a big success
Another World Productions have just had the honour of Project Managing this year’s Transition Network International
Conference. Transition Network is the charity behind the world renowned ‘Transition Towns’ Movement, a movement that begin in 2005 in Totnes in the UK and has since encircled the globe with over 1400 known initiatives and a network of nearly 30 National Hubs ranging from Chile to Australia to Japan to Spain to Norway and onwards.
AWP were brought in to Project Manage the Network’s first wholly International Conference, an event that was aimed at deepening and strengthening connections between the core UK-based team and the growing international face of Transition. With representatives from over 35 countries in attendance at the Conference, this was a unique opportunity for the Network to come face to face with itself and reflect on the journey so far and what the future would hold, whilst gaining a greater understanding of how Transition was shaping up across the Planet.
Given the global significance of this grassroots gathering, it was an honour and privilege to be invited to work with Transition Network to produce this event and ensure it was the success it had the potential to be. AWP Director, Dan Hurring, spent nine months working on the project to ensure that what was delivered was of a quality that reflected the ambitions of the Network and our own shared principles.
Thankfully, we can report that the event was a huge success. What unfolded was a landmark gathering of grassroots activists from a diversity of cultures that is rarely encountered in the social change scene. Attendees were treated to a wide range of workshops covering everything from organisational structure (Sociocracy) to Flatpack Democracy courtesy of Peter Mcfadyen of Independents for Frome, via sessions on Conflict Resolution, Creative Community Engagement and Common Cause – the latter covering the fascinating and important topic of Frames and Values in our modern society. Other sessions built on Transition Network’s successful REconomy Project, a programme that is helping support, design and deliver new ‘Transition’ Enterprises and New Economic Models. These sessions delved into the work of REconomy including its Local Entrepreneur Forums and its recent foray into and exploration of Post-Crash Economies in Spain and Portugal in particular.
In all, the event attracted around 350 attendees ranging not only in nationality but also in age, purpose and profession. AWP encountered individuals from all walks of life including an Italian MP, a German Banking Consultant and a number of journalists from EU and North American press in particular. With Fringe events including a Young Adults Gathering and TNs annual gathering of National Hubs, the Conference was bubbling with creative potential, ideas, innovations and excited conversations as new relations were made.
Dan Hurring, AWP Director, said:
“For me, being involved in this project represented everything that I am involved in events for. The Conference was a dynamic melting pot of emergent thought involving hundreds of switched-on, active citizens from 30+ nations all involved in social change and environmental movements in their countries. I am glad to say that AWP delivered what it set out to, helping to co-create an environment where new connections could be made, where seeds could be planted to later germinate, and where everybody attending got to share in and feel a lot of love.”
He goes on,
“We work hard as an organisation to deliver both professionally produced events and events that are unique, transformational and into which we pour love, care and attention to ensure that they are a success for our clients, whoever they are.”

The Transition Network Conference is back!
From 18th-20th September 2015, Transitioners from across the world will gather at the wonderful Seale-Hayne, a beautiful campus venue close to Totnes in Devon, UK for a celebration of the truly International thing that Transition has become!
This year’s Conference comes off the back of the International Permaculture Convergence which is also being held in the UK in September and we’re designing fringe events, training, tours and other special thing to ensure that delegates can make the most of their time. With so many International guests in the country anyway for the IPC, and the National Hubs Gathering also planned to occur around this time in the UK, it seems appropriate that this year’s conference will really focus in on the unfolding Global Story of Transition.
Another World Productions can promise good times, great food and fun, a chance to connect, rejuvenate and reflect with Transitioners from all over.
Tickets will go on sale in April.
