Apply Your SkillsIf you'd like to apply your skills, resources or another kind of contribution to a project, browse the Spark system, which facilitates collaborative connections. Also, watch the Jackrabbit Speaks Email Newsletter and/or your local Regional announce list for requests from artists for assistance, take a look in the Art and Performance discussion area of the ePlaya, browse Burning Man's Facebook Page, or seek out specific projects in our list of Art Installations. Finally, once you're at Burning Man, visit the ARTery to see which artists are seeking volunteer help on the playa.
