The Burning Man first started 32 years ago in 1986 on Baker Beach in San Francisco as a small function organized by Larry Harvey and Jerry James. Jerry James is also credited because he built the first “Man” and has since then been held annually each year.
At this event of Burning Man, the community explores various forms of artistic self-expression and involves all participants during the late summer event. What drives the event is the community participation and the festival-goers go by the unwritten mantra of “selfless giving of one’s unique talents for the enjoyment of all to be encouraged.” Some of the creative experiments of participants of the festival include; interactive sculptures, building, performance, and art cars, among other media. The theme changes every year, but still includes the same environment and free attitudes.
