Greece

Regional Community

Greece is quite new in the burn community, but the flame is strong within us! The community is still very small and slowly growing.

We have been having our regional event inspired by Burning Man for two years in a row and this year is no different. Our regional is a water based event, where a fleet of boats assembles and sails the Greek waters for a week, in accordance with the Burning Man principles. In 2016 a shorter land-base event followed the sail and we're planning to keep that going.

Here's a video from the 2015 event:

We now announce PYRAEGEA, the Greek Aquatic Burn Event! 9th to 16th September 2017. So if you're interested  in participating let us know and stay tuned! We need sailing-savy people, skippers, sea lovers. All the others are welcome too!

The Facebook group for this event is here:
Pyraegea the Greek Water Burn

Social Media:

The main website is currently under construction. 
We have three Facebook groups, one for the Greek burners in general, one for the Burning the Mediterranean Sea event, and one for the Greek people (or people that are in Greece) who are interested in going to Nowhere. The purpose of the last group is to facilitate those people to get organized together for travelling, planning and/or art-project purposes.
