WinterFest Confest in the Tropics - Join us

Everyone brought their ideas and visions to the weekend and we meshed and weaved them together in a supportive symbiotic formation.

Workshops - Story-telling - Seed Planting - Skill Sharing - Communal Cooking

This gathering and the emergence from it, is entirely created by its participants - individuals and groups just like you - as an interactive immersive experience for the benefit of you and other participants. There are no sponsors, no stalls, and no spectators. There is you, me, and our imaginations.

We would like to bring together a group of people that are interested in putting on WinterFest 2017.

 

 Residents

There are three types of residents

ComArtivists (Community/Art/Activist)

  • Short or Long Term.
  • Pay the agreed weekly rental rate.
  • Agree to and abide by the Mission Statement & Code of Conduct.
  • Contribute 1hr daily to the communal systems & spaces, as well as keeping the communal areas of their respective houses clean.

WWOOFers (Willing Workers On Organic Farms)

  • Minimum stay is 1 week & Longer stays are in weekly periods & only by approval.
  • Contribution of 4 hours per day in the gardens, grounds, communal spaces & supporting the operating systems.
  • Agree to and abide by the Mission Statement & Code of Conduct.
  • However if you have a special skill or trade that you think we could benefit from then please suggest it.
  • Contribute 1hr daily to the communal systems & spaces, as well as keeping the communal areas of their respective houses clean.

Guests

  • Staying in a room, tent or van.
  • Staying just for a few nights.
  • Pay the agreed daily rental rate.
  • Agree to and abide by the Mission Statement & Code of Conduct.
  • Contribute 1hr daily to the communal systems & spaces, as well as keeping the communal areas of their respective houses clean

Casual Resident Forms and a price list can be found on the dresser at the bottom of the stairway at 346. Show these forms to guests that want to stay and make sure they fill out the form and put the money in the bags provided. Money and forms need to end up in the office, however they can be slid first under the door of the pantry. One of the keyholders will take care of them then. 

Every time a potential resident, WWOOFer or Guest wants to stay at Digger Street the current residents will confer and decide (vote if needed) if that person(s) can stay. This includes all previous residents.

Guests of Residents

When you have guests at Digger Street, you must be responsible for where they stay or sleep. You are also responsible for letting them know the rates applicable to their stay, as well as to inform of and ask them to accept the code of conduct

One-off overnight stays are not expected to pay as the general rule is that you may have guests stay for two nights at no charge in your own room. Guest staying more than 2 nights, even if separated by breaks, are responsible for contributing the required 3 day rate. They are also expected to contribute 1hr daily to the communal systems, spaces & gardens, as well as keeping the communal areas of the house in which they stay clean.

It would be ideal if guests paid in advance like everyone else, and should there be any outstanding payments, it is the resident who invited the guest that is to settle the payment.

Ultimately, you will be responsible for any money outstanding for your guest’s stay

Recycling Bins

There are separate Bins in each house for plastic bottles, tins, cans and glass, kept near the Washing Up sinks:

Yellow Lid - All recyclable material (glass, paper, plastic, cans)

Only materials with the recycle symbols 1-7 on the containers.

Green Lid - All non-recyclable material, including plastic bags and containers without the 1-7 recycle symbol.

Please bring all rubbish and recycling to 346.

Put bins out each week on a Wednesday night.

Compost Bins

Any food waste should go into the compost bins to the left of the dish washing sink. There are 2 compost bins:

Chicken compost bin (No Coffee, citrus, tea bags, Avocado), they like grains, protein and fresh veg trimmings and peel.

Garden compost bin (Everything except citrus and onion skin).

Please put all chicken friendly organic waste in the chicken compost bin and everything else in the garden compost bin. If you are unsure which bin is which or what goes in which one, read the signs above the containers!

If all of this is done by everyone the rubbish bin will be much lighter and less waste goes to the magical place know as ‘away’

Spaces

 

Spaces totally created for artists to reside, socialise, commune and explore their craft within. It is a creative environment and where you see people doing their craft, please respect their space. To prevent distraction to artists please behave respectfully. No food preparation or storage to happen in the residential spaces. This includes coffee making or refrigerators.

Residence 346

346 is our service or communal house. It’s where our tea room and only kitchen can be found. It is a place to entertain, show their art & share their skills. This is also where we hold our Wednesday weekly meeting, cook and eat our meals, and hold the odd gathering. Additionally, this is where the WWOOFers are housed.

Studio spaces are available when and wherever the space allows us to offer them. They are usually priced from $190 per week. All we ask is that you:

  • Contribute to a creatively conducive atmosphere.
  • Use your space as a work space only (not to be used for accommodation for anyone).
  • Are considerate of the residents who may be near your studio in regards to noise, fumes/gases, chemicals, materials & processes.
