“…And Then There’s Only Elephants” Oh my, how we love them: In herds, and on carousels, in paint and on the Playa. Help us express our love for them…we’ll show you ours, and you can show us yours. Trumpet one and all for elephants! Let’s have some fun! This may seem irreverent, but elephants look strange, yet are the most compassionate animal on this planet. Humans are more strange – we can learn much from these loving creatures. Conventional approaches to saving elephants is not working – we need the unconventional!

Interaction Café

We create a space where servers get to create their ideal burning man experience by choosing interactions offered to guests who come by, and guests choose whichever of their offerings tickles their fancy.
