The Demon Garden

Join Burning Man philosopher and author Caveat Magister and collaborators as they walk us through the Demon Garden — a deeply personal and radically self-expressive ritual that invites participants to share and banish their inner demons.

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. 


Burning Man Project’s Global Activation Call Series highlights community projects and invites conversations to inspire activation.


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.

A Kindling Oral Storytelling Project

“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.
