NOTES

Epilogue:What Campfire wasn’t

“Campfire was never a collective as such. It was an attitude and an ideology. Not a one-off trendy ideal culled from mainstream politics, but gleaned from level discussion n s in the artist’s studio, over a beer in the backyard, a cup of tea around a fire out bush…”
