Burning Man Project’s Artist Storytelling Series


Burning Man LIVE

A New Podcast from Burning Man Project

Meet the people who make Burning Man happen, beyond the desert and out in the world. Artists, activists, and innovators. Builders and Burners, freaks and fools. Burning Man floats on a sea of stories, and the Burning Man LIVE podcast is a plucky little boat with a microphone.

at Burning Man

A sound-rich documenary series — ok, a podcast — that captures the inspiring, quirky, beautiful, aural complexity of our community through stories of camps and projects.


A Kindling Oral Storytelling Project

The word Blueprints implies instructions to build something. Hosted by Sassy VonDish, each of these micro stories functions as a map for becoming kind and resilient, based on hands-on knowledge gained from being an active participant in Black Rock City.

365: A Burning Man Field Guide

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”  –Marcel ProusAs Burners emerge from various phases of interruption and self-isolation, we’re all looking for ways to connect. Some of us are only just beginning to explore what’s possible; others are well into planning events and excursions. It’s understandable to feel a little unsteady stepping back into the world. We could all use a little guidance finding our way together.
