Burners Without Borders is a group of Burning Man participants who help out in various communities throughout the year. Most recently they have been working on a Katrina Disaster Relief Effort, with help from members of the Black Rock City DPW.
Burners Without Borders was featured this week in the San Francisco Bay Guardian with stories by Steven T. Jones (Scribe) and Tom Price.
For one week out of the year Burning Man participants (aka “Burners”) join together in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada to re-engage with our community, and to celebrate shared values of radical self-expression and self-reliance. We celebrate the power of community, honor the importance of art, and enjoy the immediacy of experience. Then we leave – without a trace of our having been there.
Burners Without Borders is a manifestation of what can happen when those values get off the playa and out into the rest of the world.
