Leadership & Staff

In a community as rich with leaders as ours, it may never be possible to recognize all the amazing people who have helped make Burning Man what it is, or to honor their individual contributions. From the founders to the first-time volunteer, the entire history of Black Rock City is one of people stepping up and taking charge. This is equally true for the Regional Network, whose leaders are playing an increasingly vital role in our ongoing story.
