We would like to thank everyone who was able to participate in our Artist Forums in October. With the two events we had 69 people attend in person and another 24 via the Internet. Each event was a lively discussion, with many ideas shared and developed. It was also our first opportunity to showcase the focus of the newly developed Burning Man Arts team — to support and promote transformative art experiences.
As part of our commitment to transparency and communication, we’ve posted the notes from the two Artist Forums below. These notes were gleaned from hundreds of sticky-notes, comments shared as feedback, and more. We are in the process of consolidating the ideas into a list of priorities and focus for our new team. We will share the priorities and how we see ourselves proceeding in the beginning of the new year.
We want to thank you for being a part of this journey with us, a journey we couldn’t take without you. Your input, and your partnership in our development of Burning Man Arts is deeply appreciated. We look forward to charting a successful, rewarding future with you!
