Hopefully by now you have heard about the Burning Man festival that takes place each year. In case you don’t know or have never heard of what the Burning Man is, it is an annual event that takes place every year in Black Rock City, Nevada. The event lasts typically a weekend in the end of August all the way to the beginning of September. The event is also stretched out into 100 miles (160 km) wide, just northeast of the city of Reno. Most describe the summer event as a community experience of art and music. The main principles of the event are; “radical” inclusion, self-reliance, and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy, and leaving no trace. It also takes its name from its culmination and symbolic ritual of a burning large wooden effigy (also known as “The Man”) that usually occurs on the last Saturday evening of the weekend that the event lands on.  




 

History 

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.
