About this organization






Uphold and manifest the ten principles of Burning Man internationally through art and culture, education, and civic engagement.


Black Rock City (BRC) is a temporary metropolis dedicated to art, community, and culture created by its 70,000+ participants and guided by the ten principles of Burning Man (see above). Through the annual construction of this physical space, Burning Man Project (BMP) empowers and inspires participants to discover, invent, and engage in new ways. This experience leads to more art and more civically-engaged citizens around the world. BRC serves as a blank canvas that inspires participation, creativity, and artistic and cultural experimentation. Burning Man has developed an approach to art that is community-driven, inclusive, interactive, and participatory. BRC is a manifestation of art's culture-building capacity, one of art's most valuable functions and one that is vital to a thriving society.
