“They want to have a vibe of exclusivity, but at the same time they want it to be very open,” he said. “They’re probably very torn with that.”

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh yeah. "Very Torn" is exactly how I imagine these people, dithering about, wringing their hands, desperate to attract the kind of attention they think they want from people just as fake as they are... poor lost souls. :|

Will be interesting to see what kind of media coverage they arrange for themselves!!!

These guys, always with the "festival" talk... As though it's another one of THOSE. NOT in a league all it's own, entirely different from the norm of festies, and OUT OF THIS WORLD??... (Shaking head once again)

I'll take a patch too. (if you're not completely inundated with orders)

I just returned from the Burning Man Global Outreach Forum. This was the office meeting to end all office meetings! Completely out of this world!!!
Okay, maybe I just spent the day walking my dogs instead, but the whole time I felt that others should follow my lead for a better tomorrow.... so that counts as something, right.

"While Wahlforss said he was unsure if the speaker events could mix well with the selection of electronic and indie musical artists, he appreciated the attempt to blend tech and culture, the intersection of which has sometimes caused discomfort and disagreement at Burning Man. Recently, the influx of young money types from the Bay Area and other places has rubbed some longtime burners the wrong way, as it has an undercurrent of classism and privilege to an event that was created to escape just that.

Further Future has no such message, and its website describing inaugural “Voyage 001″ is filled with words like “select,” “curated” and “luxurious.”

The Further Future Festival - wonder how much volunteer labor will be involved? It sounds like an EDM focused SXSW, and a great opportunity for the PnP crowd to exit Burning Man. It is also a classic BM play, build your brand and audience at BM then populate your for profit event with them. There is no way to prevent it and it should be celebrated, good riddance.

Most of the requested BRCCP patches were sent out today, along with the official card. Should be there in time for May 1st.
Let me know in a week if you haven't received a patch, yet asked for one.

This just in!!!!!!! 8)

Hello Beautiful Community!




Welcome new subscribers to our Newsletter Mailing list! We have exciting news to share for 2015.




The Placement Team is up and running at full complement and the Burning Man Headquarters team is fully operational.




We made some changes to our Theme Camp and Placement policies following events in 2014 involving TurnKey camps, and we wanted to inform you of them so you can plan accordingly.




Definitions:

TurnKey is a category of camps along a spectrum. At one end of the continuum are camps that depend on supported infrastructure to create on playa projects. At the other end are camps providing vacation type experience packages for campmates with no specific requirement for contribution.



In 2014 Burning Man placed 12 TurnKey camps all of whom indicated they would offer an interactive aspect to be enjoyed by the entire Burning Man community.



For 2015, all Placed Camps (other than infrastructure support camps) will be held to the same standards in order to receive placement, early arrival passes and access to the Directed Group Sale.



Theme Camp Placement Criteria / Standards:

Other than event infrastructure camps, all camps will be held to the same standards of inclusion and participation regardless of how the camp is structured. All Theme Camps requesting placement will be evaluated according to the following criteria:



1. Theme Camps should be visually stimulating, have an inviting design and a plan for bike parking and crowd management.




2. Theme Camps must be interactive. They should include activities, events or services within their camps that must be available to the entire Burning Man community.




3. Theme Camps must be neighbourly. This includes keeping sound within set limits, controlling where camp generators vent exhaust, and easily resolving any boundary disputes that may arise.




4. Theme Camps must have a good previous MOOP record (for returning camps).




5. Theme Camps must follow safety protocols designed by the organization (this includes traffic management on the streets, proper handling of fuels, and any other areas defined by the organization’s production team including alternatives to RV lined streets).



Entering BRC with Early Arrival passes:




Only Theme Camps meeting all of the above criteria and receiving Placement, will be given Early Arrival Passes from the Placement team for entry to BRC for pre-event set up.




Post-event evaluation, Theme Camp Standing and access to the Directed Group Sale (DGS):




Post event, all placed Theme Camps will be reviewed on the criteria above, as well as:




1. MOOP score. If a camp receives a yellow or red MOOP score, the Placement team expects the camp to be proactive in addressing the issue.




2. Strain on resources. This refers to whether a camp requires extra BRC infrastructure support, which could include undue communication or interactions with Placement, Rangers, DPW or the playa restoration team. This could also include the processing of negative feedback from other departments. If a Theme Camp attracts negative attention by violating principles and cultural norms, this will similarly strain resources.




If a Theme Camp meets all of the criteria they remain in “good standing” and may be eligible to receive access to the DGS. Exemplary camps are the most likely to be invited to the following year’s DGS.




Good standing is of benefit as it will affect future placement.




Camps not in good standing will be contacted and will be expected to make substantial changes to their submitted camp plans to qualify for future placement of the DGS for the following year.




For most of you, this information is familiar and reflects what you are already doing. For some of you, this information means you are going to need to increase your interactivity and upgrade your public facing spaces to reflect the spirit of radical inclusion.




We are here to support all of you create an amazing and interactive city for everyone at Burning Man to enjoy.




For more information about this and other topics you can watch the Theme Camp Forum. We recorded the March 21 event.




Fuze Meeting link: https://www.fuzemeeting.com/replay_meet ... e9/7113130




If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: [email protected]




Please put the name of your camp in the subject line and your requested sector.




Thank you and all the best in 2015!

The placement team and everyone involved is terrific, but this whole Turn Key thing is poison.

This is good news, but it leaves open a few questions and clarifications.

Odd... Why was the policy changed. Did the Bmorg do something wrong? Did the peons complain long and loud enough about something? The way they present this here, it is as if paperwork needs to be stream-lined so they are merging regular requirements, what should have been one policy all along.

The message touches on "events" with Turn Keys in 2014 being the reason for change... What events? Continuing with the story that some vague occurrence happened (that must remain nameless).
It's called preferential treatment.....

And going with this reliance on vagueness, yes, Turn Keys are on a spectrum, on one end actual camps, on the other end are resort vacation boutique hotels, but notice that in saying there is a spectrum, never is it pointed out here on what end the Turn Keys are on. Even this is danced around. Just come out and say it. Yes, it is a spectrum, as are all things in life. On one end are actual camps that are good, and on the other opposite end are the resort boutique hotels that are bad. Instead of this clarification, it's this unifying spectrum mentioned, with no indication where a Turn Key camp is on that spectrum, though we all know.

It's a good change in placement policy, but it is too bad they set themselves up to have to do simply what makes sense to anyone not connected, the same placement policy extended to the elites that the norms have had to follow all along.

So, in the end, none of this information concerns our behavior nor that of actual camps. None of this changes what any of us do. Hell, we all knew how to act all along, if only the Bmorg would have laid these requirements that everyone else follows on the Turn Key camps to begin with.

Destroying one culture at a time.
The premise of the Airshitzit and FestBurn is very similar, encourage those not actually attached or connected to a neighborhood or festival the opportunity to easily enjoy the experience without any long investment or dedication, while some promotional benevolent hip new-economy corp tries to make a chunk of change, until the entire apartment building/neighborhood/festival is full of visitors there to see the authenticity, and the authenticity priced out of the whole scene.

Has anyone ever heard from neighbors in a place with high temporary peer-to-peer with a slice off the top rentals saying that the temporary guests in the apartment next door driving up rents is really bringing a lot to the neighborhood, adding diversity, promoting community...?
