Event Activation: The Future of Co-Created Events?

Tuesday, September 29, 12-1pm PDT

As we look to the future of co-created events, we ask: what will the new normal look like, and how might we gather in ways that embody the ethos of Burning Man? 2020 has required flexibility and imagination to bring people together. Black Rock City, and nearly all of the 100+ officially recognized Burning Man Regional Events have been cancelled, postponed or reconfigured. Yet co-creative thinking solutions are emerging. In this call, we will discuss recent solutions, and explore the possibilities of future co-created events.

Mirage: Global Film Premiere

Saturday, October 24, 8-10pm PDT

The final documentary of the International Wood Culture Society (IWCS) featuring Burning Man series touches on the foundation: the momentary home for 80,000 citizens in the Nevada desert – Black Rock City. The fundamental elements of Black Rock City are a mixture of different groups and communities. “Mirage” unfolds multiple layers of this complex, temporary, ever-evolving desert city. Through this documentary, audiences get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how this center of creativity is designed and built every year from scratch, then vanishes into dust.
