“Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.”
There is much to appreciate about 49,000 people choosing to set up their own utopia for a week in the middle of the desert.
My favorite principle is very short:
Participation – Burning Man is about participation.
I wish New York City was about participation. I wish more education was about participation.
