Minitropolis - a home at home for creators and their friends

Postby Peacekeeper » Tue May 18, 2010 6:48 am

Calling all Doers, Creators, Vibe Inflators and Mind Rotators...

Join us at Burning Man 2010.

We present...

Minitropolis - the basterd child of the MEGATROPOLIS deep playa project and the Black Rock International Burner Hostel of old... now with more pub!

Friendly, relaxed, easygoing and with a metric, even an imperial shit-ton of gear, Minitropolis focuses on providing a fully featured basecamp experience, central location, and an dizzying array of facilities to keep our campmates happy n content, thus enabling one and all to both enjoy the burn themselves while making it even better for our neighbourhood and the city at large...

To that end, we like to provide lots of fun n games for our community, so we'll be rocking a british/irish pub experience this year, The Rising Arms, where the Guinness will flow like soup and we play proper British Darts, the kind that are sharp...

We are also the support camp for a dangerously ambitious art project,, a huge open interactive space for anyone to use and play with in the deep playa, so our crew leans heavily towards the creative end of the spectrum...


If you too are a creative type that likes the idea of helping build a giganormous art project, playing in a giganormous art project, adding your art/performance/graffiti/blinky lights to a gignormous art project, or just like playing with other people who are into that kind of shit, then please don't hesitate to first check out our camp website,, and if you like what you see, blast us a cheeky email at!

Much love y'all,
The Minitropolis crew

A pub? You mean someone's bringing a six-pack? ;)

Sounds like you may be camping out there.

how dare you disparage our awesome pub with your suggestions sir!
we will be bringing at least 3 six-packs and a bucket of warm slops that will be gifted to any thirsty soul who wants it...

and we don't camp, sir - we transplend...

I've managed to scrape some funds together and will be bringing a cooler too. I also intend to bring some concrete blocks and a varnished plank of wood for the pub bar. We'll put a curtain across the front and then we can hide the cooler behind the bar.

We're sooo gonna rock!

Stumbled across minitropolis this year with some instafriends at the burn and had a mind blowing experience. Thank you so much for putting in the work and working on the pub for this amazing spot. Please tell me you are already working on making 2011 bigger and better? I'll bring my own six pack...of hoops :D

I have a pretty epic plan for a traveling light show for the next burn as well. You should DM me and we can see if there may be a way to intertwine our minds, I gotta home at MIT who has been experimenting a lot with light and movement with elements of sound.
