A northern california hello!

Postby TeresaEve » Sun Jan 20, 2013 7:32 pm

Hi there. My name is Teresa, but I like Jasmin better. I'm from Northern California. I like pretty things, i like burning man. I'm a mixed race woman about to hit my quarter century mark... burning man has been absolutely instrumental in my growth.. I'm looking to connect with folks of color out on the playa this year..also looking for opportunities to dance and model- forgive me if this is not the right place to be posting my desires, i'll figure out this message board forum internet computer thing eventually ;)

cheers!

Jasmin

Theme camp registration is about up I believe, but does anybody want to talk about getting something colorful going? 2014 even.

On another note- I am a model/dancer looking to collaborate my musings on some tasty art, and dance for hours on your stage/structure if you'd like it ;)

So. Can we be friends? :mrgreen: Or do I need a tutu...

Hey Jasmin! I'm multi-racial too. People of color on the playa tend to be underrepresented for (for cultural and socioeconomic reasons, not exclusionary ones--in my experience, anyway).

I don't know of a minority-based theme camp; in my experience the closest precedence are camps celebrating certain places on the map. Kind of a nice idea, because it's more inclusive, and Radical Inclusion is one of the 10 Burn principles.

Have you been to the Burn before? It's hard to tell from your post.

If you decide to start a camp yourself, you can post here in 2013 Theme Camps (and check out "How to Start a Theme Camp"):
viewforum.php?f=323

You can look to collaborate artistically below. Closer to the Burn there will be threads called "Artists Looking for Stages" and "Stages Looking for Artists" in this forum.

Hey Jasmin! I've heard the discussions about a lack of color in the burning man community. After a week, it's true! We are ALL white! But, you might check out Roller Disco. They're the most thoroughly mixed camp I've seen on the playa. And they're a great group of people! Best of Luck!

They're a family, both on and off the playa. I kinda feel like the bastard Punk son, especially after my meltdown in 2007(?) (Ygmir may recall the beginning of that one). But they still treat me like family.

Thanks Ygmir! That was a tough night. You missed me, punching the shit out of that solid wood bar.

HI! Thank you for the warm welcome! Excuse the lag in response time, might be hard to believe but internet is hard for me to come by these days.

Thank you for your links Savannah! This year will be my third burn. As far as geographical camps versus culture camps, I think they're all a great idea. But I want to say that a camp based on culture doesn't have to create any exclusions. It can simply be a place where people sharing heritage come together to celebrate that culture, and share it with others. It can be a very inclusive and educational experience for many curious minds. To me Burning Man is about embracing culture and diversity in whatever form it may come. We are all family out there, and wanting to emphasize something you find beautiful about yourself, and share it with others, should not have to create any divides :)

ROLLER DISCO! A little birdy pointed me to RollerDisco in the last couple of days, thank you Tom for re affirming that!!

roar roark, I feel like I know you so well already ;)

That's quite true, and since you confirm you've attended before, I think you have a better shot at it.

(If you hadn't been, a lack of familiarity with the culture as it currently is would--in my opinion--make it more difficult.)
