Campfire Talks: The Series

Have you’ve missed previous Campfire Talks episodes?

Campfire Talks is a monthly series hosted by Burning Man Project’s Camp Network Team comprised of volunteers from Black Rock City’s theme camp community. The series brings together theme camp organizers by the virtual campfire to feature their stories, share their knowledge, discuss timely topics, and to find new ways to connect.

Regional Events

Burning Man recognizes these community organized events as official Regional Events that are endorsed by local Burning Man Regional Contacts and organized in a manner that is consistent with agreed upon standards and the guiding 10 Principles of Burning Man (link to principles). For more information and updates, you can reach out to these recognized events directly.

Regional Network Forum

In June 2021, the Burning Man Regional Network Forum: Emerging, Wayfinding, Igniting was held as an online regathering for all community leaders across the globe to re-inspire engagement in Burning Man culture beyond Black Rock City and strengthen the cultural connections between regional communities after a year of cancelled Regional Events, prototyping COVID-safe interactive art experiences, and pandemic-related isolation.


A Kindling Oral Storytelling Project

The word Blueprints implies instructions to build something — in this case, we’re offering up individual stories as maps for becoming kind and resilient leaders, workers, citizens… in short, better humans.

This micro story podcast series features candid conversations with remarkable humans — from imagineers and city builders, to intriguing humans from across the global Burning Man community.

Each oral story offers up personal, professional, and creative perspectives on how to approach one’s daily life, based on the knowledge gained by being active participants at Black Rock City and to have a meaningful impact on the people around us and the communities of which we are all a part.
