Located In The Beautiful Desert Landscape Of Utah, Element 11 Is A Celebration Of Art, Self-Expression, And Community. Inspired By The 10 Principles Of The Burning Man, Element 11 Is A Place Where People Come Together To Create, Inspire, And Connect With One Another. Join us June 21-25 2023 for Enchanted Roots. 

Each summer in Utah, burners gather to celebrate our unique burner culture here in Utah. This Event is sanctioned by the Regional Burning Man Network and is intended to create an immediacy of experience and personal connection, encouraging relationships and collaborations that enable people to act more powerfully than individuals alone could dream — especially in the face of the daunting social realities of the “default world”. Not everyone has the opportunity to attend Burning Man in Black Rock City, but with our regional burn event, more and more people will have the opportunity to experience the Burning Man culture. We invite you to come out, get involved and build, create, play & connect with us!

We began as one of the very first official Burning Man Regional Events in the world. Since then we have evolved into a dynamic, year-round, active community whose mission is to ignite a sustainable culture of creativity and self-expression!

Our Board of Directors and community leaders are committed to continue to support the evolution of the Utah Burning Man community of artists. We see art in all forms, in all ways, in all people and in life itself. We provide a canvas for our community to come together. To play, dance, evolve, create & ignite!

Our community’s core culture is built on the values reflected in The 10 Principles established by the Burning Man Organization. Today, Burning Man has become more than an annual event, it has become a worldwide culture. The culture is defined as a way of life lived consistent with The 10 Principles. These principles have arisen because of the commitment the Burning Man Organization has for the sustainability of their annual Event. The 10 Principles inspire and guide people all over the world to live in a way that creates sustainability in their lives, families, communities and the world.

Element 11 is a unique community. Together we create a vibrant, important and strong subculture within Utah, a very conservative state. We consider ourselves a tight-knit community and family. We are bound together by love for one another, our community, and our mission. We invite you to participate with us in any way that inspires you. We also encourage you to explore and incorporate The 10 Principles in your life, your communities and your world.

Decompression 2023

The dates are September 29- Oct 1 and will be held at Seabase in Grantsville, Utah. This is an organic event that we create together while following the Ten Principles . It's another opportunity to showcase your art and to gather as a Burning Man Community.
