Check out our plans for an experiment in spontaneous urban planning and development!https://www.facebook.com/CampCollaboPaint/info
A Burning Man Camp
To spontaneously create a community in the Black Rock desert of awesome people who want to help us create a collaborative dome art piece. To contribute art and activity to the playa.
We are a small unofficial camp that plans to build a large dome covered in white canvass. We believe that art is often a collaboration of brilliance so we plan to offer up all different types of paint to anyone who feels like contributing their art to our dome. We hope the dome will be a colorful masterpiece by the end of the week. We want our huge dome to be a sort of blank canvas. So artists and others can come use our different types of paints to paint our dome however they please. We hope our fellow campers will contribute their art to the dome.
In the spirit of fertility burning man is experimenting with some new things this year: “Public plazas are at Kingcup and 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00. We are holding most of the camping space around these plazas unreserved and available for the general public to occupy and maintain as an experiment in spontaneous urban planning and collaboration.”http://www.burningman.com/preparation/m ... index.html
We plan to station our camp at Kingcup and 9:00 and create an awesome spontaneous community.
We are looking for some people to join our super chill and small camp. Our communal space shade dome will be large enough to accommodate 15 people easily and we hope to have 8-10 max for a chill and awesome environment. Please see below what we plan to offer, who we are, and what we are looking for.
What we plan to offer:
1.) A fully private , very nice and functional shower. We will provide a grey water evaporation pond and full privacy. You must provide your own water. Our shower holds 5 gallons of water at a time. The shower will consist of a wood frame. Where you stand will be elevated off the ground. Below the shower will be part of the evaporation pond. there will be a step up to the shower and standing on bamboo 1/2 inch apart the water will drain down below you. The curtains will be made of dark and substantial fabric for privacy.
2.) We are building a 19 foot diameter dome that is 14 feet at its highest location. The dome will be constructed using pine 2x4s. It will be covered with white canvas material. The floors of the dome will be covered in comfortable rugs and carpeting. We plan to have one or two couches and lots of cozy seating with pillows and chairs. There will be a small sound system. This will be the central communal zone of this small camp.The dome will be lit up with lots of different colored lights and decorated with lots of nice fabrics. I also hope to create a alter and meditation space for the mornings.
3.) We are building a complete kitchen with two shade tents for preparing and eating meals. You may use the kitchen whenever you want which will include a sink for washing and all necessary cooking tools and utensils. You should bring your own plate, cup, mug, fork, knife and spoon. The kitchen will also have a bbq and several cooking stoves.
4.) We plan to offer dinner every night to all of our campers at sundown. Our meals will be health conscious, filling and tasty.
5.) Electricity. We want our camp to be lit up at night so we plan to bring a generator. We want lots of different lights all throughout the dome and inside. We also plan to have a stereo system in the dome. There will be a recharging station.
Who we are:
So far we are one dude and two cute girls from the bay area and LA. We are all in our twenties. For all three of us this is either our second or first time at burning man. We want to have all of the creature comforts of a big camp without all of the crowds, chaos, and work. We are trying to build a place where things will be nice and harmonious while also contributing to the playa. We also want to have healthy meals to keep us energized. We hope this spontaneous experiment will allow us to meet and camp with a few new people.
What we are looking for:
1.) A few chill young and fun people to join our camp and share in the communal spaces.
2.) People willing to contribute dues (please PM for details)
3.) Preferably people who this is only their first, second or third years at Burning Man.
4.) We don’t require any work but if someone wants to build a bar and bring it that would be awesome for the dome.
If you are at all interested in joining our experiment in spontaneous community development please email us through this page. We are open minded, caring, awesome and fun people looking to expand our little camp and our worlds in the process.
Love, Respect, Participation, Collaboration and Unity.
