Burning Man

A city in the desert. A culture of possibility. A network of dreamers and doers. To submit photos for consideration, email: instagram@burningman.org.

We have changed, yes. We are changing, and the theme, Metamorphoses, speaks to that. And this Man Pavilion also opened the door for change. Link in bio #burningman #brc #theman #thankslarry
In 2017, we launched Project Citizenship, a cross-departmental effort to address some problematic behavioral trends in Black Rock City and to emphasize the importance of participation. The overarching theme is to instill a sense of citizenship in Black Rock City participants and Burners worldwide, and to inspire them to espouse our ideals in their own communities. These are just a few of the things we’re doing through Project Citizenship, and we look forward to stepping up our efforts for 2019 and beyond. Our focus areas for this year are Exclusivity/Radical Inclusion, Decommodification and the commercial exploitation of Burning Man art & culture, and Greening Your Burn (focusing on environmental responsibility and camp innovations).

Your 2019 Temple: “The Temple of Direction” by Geordie Van Der Bosch. Katie Hazard writes: “The Temple of Direction is a linear space, capturing the elegance and austerity of the torii gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Japan, where the artist previously lived. The linear lines form a passage that expands into a large hall, eliciting both a physical experience and a metaphysical journey. It’s a space that responds to the openness of the playa by creating a framework that encourages you to travel from end to end.” Read more in the Burning Man Journal! | Renderings from Geordie Van Der Bosch | #burningman #brc #blackrockcity #temple2019 #temple #radicalselfexpression #participation #thankslarry

In partnership with the @environmental_defense_fund and #BlackRockLabs , Jane Chu was Burning Man Project's 2018 Fly Ranch Energy Fellow. She is also an EDF Climate Corps Fellow. Over the summer, she helped the Fly Ranch team begin to understand the solar, wind, and geothermal renewable energy potential of the property. @fly_ranch is Burning Man Project's 3,800-acre property in Northern Nevada, just a few miles away from where the annual Burning Man event is held. It was purchased in 2016, thanks entirely to the generosity of donors who wanted to help support the next chapter of Burning Man’s evolution. We hope Fly Ranch will become a platform for innovation and creativity.
