BRAF on the Playa 2010
August 30, 2010 - September 6, 2010
Each year, BRAF returns to our source of our inspiration, to that city where interactive art is everywhere you look: Black Rock City. 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.
Once again, the outreach groups of Burning Man (Burners Without Borders, The Black Rock Arts Foundation, Black Rock Solar and The Regional Network) have teamed up to create a unified presence on the playa: District Everywhere!
District Everywhere is housed under one large pavilion (which might look familiar… it’s one of the pavilions that surrounded the Man in 2007 and 2008!) This year, our space will take on the appearance of 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.
District Everywhere is located at the intersection of the Center Camp outer ring, 6:30, and the Esplanade. Map
Together, the outreach groups will also host interactive activities, art projects, events and gatherings, all geared toward kindling ideas and generating momentum for off-playa, after-Burning Man outreach efforts. Join us for daily BurnSide Chats, hosted lectures, salons and discussions about art, community and culture, from 2:00-4:00pm, Monday through Saturday.
Each outreach group will also be hosting cocktail parties and mixers specifically for their group at District Everywhere. Join us for an opening reception, ‘Party Everywhere,’ on Monday, from 4:30-6:30pm, the Regional Network’s Cocktail Party on Wednesday, from 5:00-7:00pm, and for BRAF’s Cocktail Party on Thursday, from 4:00-6:00pm.
Please visit BRAF any day of the week to learn more about recent projects and future endeavors, and to add to our community-created art installation. We will be lounging in the shade from 10:00am-6:00pm, sipping lemonade and conspiring to bring interactive art to communities beyond the playa.
