Posted: Monday 18 October   » View on Website

Fancy yourself a bit of an art connoisseur? Know your Bansky from a Hirst? Good for you, though not really necessary for this role. What we do need though is someone who can lead in a calm manner, who can talk to Theme Camp leads, work with Paddock artists, enforce processes and keep an eye on arts budgets, grants, and other monetary wranglings. The Arts Facilitator needs a Second in Command, so why not volunteer? May as well do something with that Arts degree.

The role is 2 hours per week year-round, rising to 5+ hours per week from September to February. Check out the job description here and apply via this form.

Bring Your ART, Bring Your EVENTS!!

Posted: Monday 18 October   » View on Website

Registrations for events and art pieces are still alive and kicking, so if your creativity has been tickling you with some special piece you know the Paddock needs then don’t delay. The glow-in-the-dark shnazzledrum or the doodlebitsabob with electrical display and smell-o-vision won’t register themselves. 

Or if your fancies lie more in entertaining the masses space, then maybe registering an event is more your thing? There is always a need for someone to teach pan flute playing, backwards flamenco dancing or the ever popular sub Tibetan “silent”  throat singing. Register here, so our event can be highlighted in the guide.

A new role is to be filled in the sustainability team: crew/scrum supporter. In a nutshell, this role revolves around making the sustainability leads’ work smoother, facilitate weekly catch-ups online, and prepare for the set-up of a physical space at the event.

While this role calls for an organised person, it will also require a great, active listener and flexible team player who is okay navigating some uncertainties as we figure our way forward towards greener practices. The role is 1 to 3 hours commitment a week in the months leading up to the Burn, with some time commitment during the Burn itself. Check out the job description here.

Burning Man 2022 Announces Theme: Waking Dreams

Posted: Monday 18 October   » View on Website
Burning Man Waking Dreams 2022 theme

The 2022 Burning Man theme will explore the transformative power of dreams, both literal and figurative, and celebrate the dreamers who channel this potent energy in eye-opening, often surrealistic, sometimes life-changing ways. After a long hazy blur of pandemic insomnia, unanchored in time and adrift between sleeping and waking, it’s time to start imagining the future again. For what is Black Rock City if not a collective manifestation of our community’s dreams?
