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.
