If you are making your virgin voyage to the big burn in Black Rock City (or planning a future trip to That Thing in the Desert, this night is for you.
Flipit, Hambone, and friends will explain how the event is set up, offer playa tips for you to survive and thrive and most importantly, answer any burning questions you still have about getting ready for – and making the most of – Burning Man (And yes there are major differences vs preparing for Lakes of Fire).
Toward the end, we’ll make time for veterans who want to introduce or invite virgins to participate in their playa-bound art, shipping, theme camp, or volunteer opportunities.
(If you want to present, contact [email protected])
Then we’ll wrap up with some social time and clean up the space to “Leave No Trace”.
Presented on behalf your Chicago Burning Man Regional Contacts, supported by Bold Urban Renaissance Network NFP
