A city in the desert.

A culture of possibility. A network of dreamers and doers.

Burning Man

Burning Man isn’t your usual festival. It’s a vibrant participatory metropolis generated by its citizens.

Tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary and vibrant metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-reliance, self-expression and self-discovery. Burning Man is a practice in community – “Burners” create art, exchange ideas, and participate in the burning of the Man, a symbol whose meaning is as varied as the attendees themselves.

Burners are not simply “attendees,” but active participants: they create the city, the interaction, the phenomenal art installations, the performance and ultimately the experience. Participation is a gift given to the larger community for everyone’s benefit.
