adopt a person [me].

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.

adopt a person [me].

Postby 102525 » Tue Mar 03, 2009 4:37 am


I'm hoping to attend this years burning man, coming all the way from London, UK where I work as a designer on projects ranging from architecture to sculpture. Outlandish stuff.

I want to be as involved as much as possible at burning man. I have strong conceptual design/art skills as well as practical skills such as painting/drawing and construction/common sense. as well as usual IT stuff. My whole education/employment background relates to creativity in some way.

I really want to be part of a group that could use my help/skills since this will be my first year going and would like it to become as complete an experience as is possible.

It would also be amazing to meet people before the event who I could help set up some kind of installation/art/design based environment, ultimately earning the right to hitch with, as coming from the UK alone means a lack of car and transportation! Will be flying light with a tent and the rest purchased on arrival. I am available for three weeks surrounding the dates and would like to make the most of this and contribute as much as possible.

Aside from being interested in creativity I hope to meet interesting open minded people to share this experience with, and I am prepared for anything and open to every eventuality.

Hey there, welcome to eplaya!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me

The one I know right now locally needing workers is this....dont know in what capacity their in need of...but you could contact them and see....

Its the large'ish fire performing platform open to fire performers, but there is fire pyrotechnics/sound/platform design and build,packing/unpacking/putting it all together playa side.

Its HARD work, I kid you not. We helped build the original platform for last yr and yr before. and actually went out on the playa a week early to set it all up.

Hard work but very rewarding, VERY VERY rewarding!
