Illumination Village is an eclectic gathering of camps, held together by history and shared resources. We don’t require expensive dues to create a joint vision; instead, each camp is responsible for their own art and interactivity, and each is self funded. We have our own process of placement within the village, much like the microcosm of Burning Man, showcasing our most talented artists in the front, and then placing others around our edges of our camp, and within the village in our Town Square and internal roads. Each year it’s a new experiment in radical collaboration to create a cohesive feel for the village, across our many diverse camps. We love the multifaceted variety of environments and believe that it makes Illumination Village a unique and delightful place to visit.URL: http://www.illuminationvillage.org/ Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Hometown: San Francisco
