Regional Round Up

Electric Fencepost

Burning Seed… is approaching fast, September 26 and counting. The tickets have sold out so if you are lucky enough to be going or want to keep up with the action anyway, check out their Facebook page, and their website for updates.

Burning Man… Playa restoration is underway. What is restoration you ask? Well looky here and all your questions will be answered. You can also check out last year’s MOOP map, and a multi-part blog of what really goes on out there… Kiwiburn does this too! But with less dust and more sheep poo.

Um… what was that about drones? A special moment to honour Larry Harvey. Top tip: you should probably watch this. Burning Man you continue to astound.

Don’t believe the hype? What it is like going to Burning Man for the first time.

What’s the point of this whole Burning Man thing? “Change the world, one person at a time,” Burning Man founder Harley K. Dubois said alongside fellow founder and Burning Man Project CEO Marian Goodell at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Renwick Gallery‘s Burning Man symposium on Friday, 14 September.

Art-spiration. Now that you have All of the Time to save up, plan, apply for an art grant and build some sweet art for Kiwiburn 2020, what on earth will you do? Why not take a look at some art from around the world, for example…

…those Dutchies are a kooky bunch – look at the art from Where the Sheep Sleep  (filter for ‘art’ at the top).

art news from Flipside, the infamous Texas regional.

…lots of Big Weird stuff from Tankwa Town. Yes, we recognise ‘big’ and ‘weird’ are almost redundant in the burning world, but which Big Weird stuff will you be making?

…or simply, the old man of Midburn.

There is, indoubtedly, more art-spiration a mere Google search away. What are you waiting for?
