Hi there!

Not much to say on my end, so I'll keep this short. Please join us for a solstice bonfire in honor of Larry Harvey this Thursday at Dockweiler Beach - or, if you can't join us there, take a moment wherever you are at sunset on June 21 to reflect on what Burning Man is to you. Maybe it will inspire your playa adventures this year, if you're choosing to make that journey.

As always, feel free to hit me up directly at with any submissions or questions, or to reach all of us at once.

Survey Still Open

We are conducting a survey to update our records of people who are involved with theme camps, art cars and art installations and those people that want to volunteer time to help with these projects.

We are hoping to be able to connect burners that want to give something with people and projects that need that gift. We hope to be able to respond to everyone that completes this form.  

We plan to share the contact information of Art Projects and Theme Camps with individuals.  Individuals can then reach out to Art Projects and Theme Camps. We will NOT share the contact information of individuals with the Art Projects and Theme Camps - we are leaving that up to you!

Please fill out the survey here. Can't wait to see you and all your amazing work on the playa in a few months!


People frequently ask us how they can volunteer and get involved when they arrive at Burning Man. Remember that Black Rock City is just that - a city - that depends on thousands of mostly volunteer municipal workers who help the city function, hence the principle of Civic Responsibility. Plus, gifting a few hours of your time usually becomes an amazing opportunity to meet and interact with other burners in a unique way.

The good news is that there are SO MANY ways to give back to BRC in all kinds of capacities and at varying levels of commitment and skill. Many "departments," such as the Post Office or Lamplighters, let you volunteer immediately by showing up (or signing up a couple hours in advance) to deliver mail or partake in the lamp lighting ritual.

 Just a few other departments that love volunteers:
-Arctica (ice sales)
-Center Camp Coffeeshop
-Burn Perimeter Support Group
-Dept. of Mutant Vehicles
-Recycle Camp
-Temple Guardians

To find out more about available opportunities, visit On playa, visit the V-Spots in the Portals of Center Camp and the 3:00 and 9:00 Civic plazas and they'll find a way to put you to work!

The Venice Afterburn is now an official regional Burning Man event! If you've ever attended, you know this is a fun, free annual burner event at Venice Beach. It takes a lot of work, dedication, and not least of all money and resources to put together a free community event like this, so the lovely folks who produce this event could use your support.
