For many of us in the BRAF community, Burning Man is more than an event. It’s our organization’s birthplace. It continues to be our source of inspiration — an example of a society where art serves an intrinsic connective function for the community. We eagerly look forward to our stay on the playa as an opportunity to connect with our supporters, to inspire others to instigate interactive artworks in their hometown, and to educate about our mission and our projects.
If you’ll be on the playa this year, please stop by and introduce yourself, and join us at one of our events! Once again, we’ve teamed up with the other Burning Man Affiliate Groups (Burners Without Borders, Black Rock Solar, The Regional Network and the new Burning Man Project) to create a unified presence on the playa that we call “Everywhere!”
Everywhere is housed under one large pavilion. Together, we’ll host activities, art projects, events and gatherings (listed in the What Where When guide) all geared toward kindling ideas and generating momentum for off-playa, after-Burning Man outreach efforts.
The interior space of Everywhere resembles a large world map, with continents cut out of wood, set up at table height. With the assistance of our World Domination Team, guests will create miniature sculptural representations or flags to represent their off-playa projects and endeavors.
Visit us at Everywhere, at 6:30 and Esplanade, at the 2011 Burning Man event in Nevada!
