Barn Raising

A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

Barn Raising

Postby Audey Lee » Sun Sep 09, 2007 9:46 am

I have ideas but no means. Everybody know about old-fashioned Barn raising? If not, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn_raising

So ANYWAY, what a great American tradition to bring to next year's theme! Would somebody please take my idea and run with it? The Barn Raising could be highly inclusive - many people on the playa working together to put it up. It could be an artpiece that would host great events and concerts (akin to the "Waffle" of last year). Most importantly, what a great thing to burn at the end of it all!

So does anyone know the first thing about barn raising?

Everything I know about barn raising I learned from the Little House on the Prairie books.
