As is tradition every year, artists and creatives are invited to get their plots and create homes and art installations in our virtual temporary city. At BURN2 Regional for 2021, we are going to have at 12 sims of Playa so that’s plenty of space for seasoned and new B2 Burners to build their art, theme camps, and even camp villages. So collect some friends and join together to make your scene on BURN2’s virtual Playa, 2021! Yes, you can group build and make a great village or art installation come alive and share it with friends.
This year’s theme, The Great Unknown, is Burning Man’s 2021 theme and we are presenting this as BURN2’s theme for our annual October burn at BURN2. Did you bring out your art for Virtual Burn Week? If yes, bring it out again to BURN2 in October. We’ll help you take your mesh builds, we’ll help you with some premade camp supplies that you can decorate as your own. Take your virtual theme camp to another level by creating gatherings of activities in your camp and get posted in our Who, What, Where Guide, BURN2-Style! We have a large Burner community at BURN2 and we are excited to see what you will bring out to the virtual Playa and share with us! We have “plot sales” going on now and it’s equal to buying a ticket to camp on the Playa. This helps to pay for the cost of renting the sims in Second Life and is completely non-profit. Check out more at www.burn2.org.
We will also have a way to apply for the Plottery if you find you are unable to afford a plot, but you want a place to call your home on the Playa. Stay tuned to BURN2 to find out soon how your camp can apply.
You Could Create a Small Art Display
Big art sounds intimidating? We are inviting Burners to contribute small-scale art that will be displayed in across the Playa. We will have more info on how soon. Meanwhile, put on your art beret that gets those creative juices flowing and fire up the sketchbook or mesh build apps now and add your bit of creativity to the event in October.
No Such Thing as Bystanders
The moment you step onto the dusty Playa, you are not a mere spectator, you’re part of the spectacle: Welcome Home!
Gift Your Talents in Tunes and Dance
Not into building virtually? Burners build bitchen stages for performers and even have a Center Camp Stage at Burn2. Pretty soon, we’ll have a performer’s self-sign-up application on our website for DJ’s, live mixers, live musicians and singers to get signed up quickly. The stage times are first come, first served. And all camps aka “plots” have their own sound stream and can create their own stage so you can even do your thing inside your camp space and invite others to join you, of course. Want to read, interview someone, have poetry readings? You can do that with a live stream or in local voice chat.
And, last but not least…the Man will Burn! And we will build and burn a beautiful Temple, a space that we hope you will enjoy similar to the experience what you get from being in the presence of a temple on a physically dusty Playa.
SHARE the News with your friends and Plan to Come!
We look forward to welcoming Home Burners and community. Walk through the gate, and if you are a virgin Burner, ring the bell! Follow the Lamplighters on their twice-daily processions; visit the Rangers, view the Man and meditate in the Temple. Wander, explore, climb, interact. Dress your avatar in your Playa finest. Visit the many performance camps with music to soothe, inspire, excite and incite to dance with your avatar in your own living room. You will be surrounded by art, music, fire and welcoming Burners!
