BRAF’s presence at Burning Man
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.
We Are Everywhere!
Once again, Burning Man outreach and affiliate groups (Burners Without Borders, The Black Rock Arts Foundation, Black Rock Solar, The Burning Man Project and The Burning Man Regional Network) have teamed up to create a unified presence on the playa: the “Everywhere” pavilion.
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 again take on the appearance of a large world map, with continents cut out of wood, set up at table height. We invite you to plant a tree or add a leaf in your city or region, sharing about your year-round activities.
We will be located at the intersection of the Center Camp outer ring, 6:30, and the Esplanade.
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 round-table discussion, 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 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.
