Theme Camp Symposium Sat 3/28 | Sherpa Beth FTW

Post by some seeing eye » Fri Mar 27, 2020 11:19 am

The cultural direction setting project has continued even though everyone is worried about their families.

Theme camp symposium 9AM Pacific time Saturday via ZoomTM.

https://burningman.org/themecamp-symposium/

And from https://burningman.org/event/camps/payt ... ng-people/

"Paying People: There is an important distinction between paying people for work done before or after the event versus for work done on playa.

The latter - paying people or providing proxies for payment to do work on playa — likely requires a special recreation permit (SRP) from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Burning Man Project does not place theme camps whose activities would require an SRP, according to BLM. Any camp member engaging in an on-playa activity, on behalf of or within the camp, that requires payment for those services is not permitted, unless it’s via an approved Outside Services vendor.

The former – paying people or providing proxies for payment for work before or after the event – requires cultural consideration in each circumstance, for which we’ve provided recommendations below."

In other words, as I read it, no concierge sherpas, no caterers, no on-playa construction/deconstruction sherpas unless contracted through OSS.

And with respect to OSS, another interesting tidbit from the "Here’s What We’ll Look For" part of the "Self-reliance / Strain on Resources" section of the revised placement criteria:
Were you overly reliant on using Outside Services or Heavy Equipment rather than your own resources?
