volenteer seeking project

Postby isobelzebra » Tue Apr 07, 2009 6:41 pm

Hi,

I'm a london based recent art college graduate looking to learn about the creative production of burning man by volenteering during the run up to the festival. I'd like to spend two weeks before it starts on site helping to build, and would prefer not to have to buy a ticket if possible? I will also be in san fran for June and July and looking to get hands on involved then too.

I'll be running my own project during the festival - you can see my work at www.zebraworld.co.uk

Thanks!

Good luck - remember you cant simply drop the same post in multiple threads. Ones enough eplayans are diligent about looking at new stuff so it wont get missed.

Two weeks is really, really hard. At that point really only DPW and other direct volenteers are on-playa. And not just johnny-come-lately volenteers, but the hard-core, long-term proven volenteers.

You might be able to get in sometime after the Wednesday before with a camp for set up, but again, as the camps usually get fewer Early Arrival Passes than they ask for, they are likely to have their most key and valuable people using them.

Just letting you know.

And that is a big crock of bullshit, IMHO.
