BURNING MAN – THE EVENT 2018
26 August 2018 >3 September 2018$190.00
Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.
A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.
A shared philosophy permeates every aspect of Burning Man culture. This ethos is the living heart of our community, our conscience and our collective memory. Outlined in the Ten Principles but more fully revealed in our actions, it informs all that we do. For our culture to survive and flourish we must continually work to nourish these core values. We refer to this ongoing mission of stewardship and scholarship as the Philosophical Center.
Through art grants, mentorship, and art management programs, Burning Man Artssupports the creation of impactful, interactive artwork around the world and in Black Rock City, home to the seminal Burning Man event. The mission of Burning Man Arts is to change the paradigm of art from a commodified object to an interactive, participatory, shared experience of creative expression.
Burning Man Arts acts on the belief that community-driven, inclusive and interactive art is vital to a thriving culture. Get inspired and get involved!
