About the event

What is Mud Fun?

For several years, Mud Fun Australia has been hosting festive “musical mud stomp” events mostly via schools. Over 15,000 people have taken part. These events are tied into a construction project - usually a small structure like a community garden kitchen or playground playhouse or wood-burning oven or stove. Loosely based on the old “community barn-raising” event and their equivalents that still happen around the world today, the musical mud stomp is comprised of the audience, the music ensemble, the food servers, and the barefoot mud stomp dancers who dance in the mud to churn it up into a suitable construction material. Once mixed, the mud is formed into blobs that are passed down the line to where they are formed into bricks or cobs for building and sculpting walls. In this way, the labour-intensive component of this heritage construction technique is transformed into recreational fun. Outputs are both the physical structure and the social-emotional benefits which include hands-on, project-based learning opportunities.

Join David for an amazing presentation on mud building. Mud is a building material that allows you to interact with it like no other, especially in the summertime. Take full advantage. Summer mud is soothing to the soul and skin. The skin and soul don’t lie.

Blend the cultural performing arts with traditional earthen masonry construction to rejuvenate our spirits and revive this lost art and science of high-performance shelter.

The musical mudstomp is an event where mud is mixed with bare feet to live music. The mixtures are then used for building high performing structures.

Learn how we can use our strength in numbers to create new perspectives on shelter and its creation.

We invite you to this free presentation, including a Q&A; on the amazing benefits of mud building, at both a construction, spiritual and community level. 

Reserve you spot now for this fabulous free on-line presentation to be held 19 October at 7pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time.

Your zoom link will be sent to you with reservation ticket.

We look forward to seeing you there.
