Aussie Meetup on the Playa

Post by imperatrixi » Tue Aug 10, 2010 9:06 pm

Hi Burners from Down Under and friends

Pixi Pirate and I are keen to organise a get together on the playa to meet our community who have made the big trek and to help build momentum for a desert burn in Australia.

At this stage it's going to be at 3pm on Tuesday 31st August in Centre Camp.

We will try to bring some flags to identify us and if you have one you can bring that would be great - make it easier to spot us in the crowd.

If would you like PM me your email address so I can keep in touch and also please contribute any suggestions you have about location, advertising etc.

Please pass this on to anyone you know that may be interested.

I will post this to the Burning Man Playa Events listing and on and the Facebook groups. If anyone is also active on tribe if you could post it there and let me know the link that would be ace.

Woohoo it's so soon!!!!

Well we could have the get together on Wednesday, there is a venue space we may be able to use and it's got even less scheduled on Wednesday so that might work. Make sure you PM me your email so I can keep you updated!

Dusts & Illusions
A Documentary film by Olivier Bonin.

Exploring the deep origins of the annual BURNING MAN festival Dust & Illusions examines the evolution of the largest counter-culture festival in North America from the 1970s until today.

Using rare and unseen archival footage, including interviews of the founders, artists and participants, Dust & Illusions reveals long-forgotten events and memories of key participants that shaped and influenced the festival in powerful ways.

Bringing a critical perspective, Dust & Illusions analyses the development of culture, art and community as experienced by the participants of BURNING MAN.

This 'not to be missed' film has been selling out across the United States and Canada, and will be screening in MELBOURNE for ONE night only!

There will be no DVDs for this film.
