Fire Starter Festival Newsletter

On Pausing Fire Starter in 2022 & On New Beginnings

After a creative, innovative and first-ever online Fire Starter Festival, the team has taken some time to reflect on ideas that have been ignited and developments that have been sparked since #FSF2021.

Among those ideas that have been sparked and nurtured is the development of a new festival with an intensified focus on collaborative and systemic leadership, to be held in spring 2022. With the vision to showcase leadership across all sectors in and outwith Scotland, the new festival will be held predominantly online from 28 February to 4 March 2022 and, for this year, will replace Fire Starter Festival, which would usually take place during this time.

We believe that the new festival will be as much of a feeding ground for new ideas and innovative thinking as FSF has been, and we would like to encourage you to get involved once more information gets released via the Collective Leadership for Scotland Team. Please subscribe to the CLFS newsletter to stay up-to-date.
