The Spark

Fire Starter Festival Newsletter

“The way you change a system nationally is to do thousands of local things, and eventually the system evolves” - Joe Concra.

Happy Bonfire night!

The FSF 2020 launch is now LIVE! You can see the launch and a few other events that event organisers have put up on the FSF events calendar here.

If you have an idea for an event and are looking for partners or vice versa, check out our padlet, our online noticeboard for Fire Starter Festival.

Host a Fire Starter Festival event

Workforce Scotland will host the launch plus a few other events during the Fire Starter Festival, but the festival is mainly a space for anyone working in public services to catch the sparks and create their own events and small fires of change.

You may want to host a bespoke event on this year's theme: What kind of Scotland are we seeking to build?” However, feel free to do an event that aligns with your own interests, there's no need to follow the theme.

This year, the deadline to upload your event to the Events Calendar will be 13th December. See the guide on how to do it here.

If you would like some help thinking through how you and your organisation could get involved please email
The kindling - want to know more?
