Get Involved

Wherever you are and whatever your skills, there are plenty of exciting opportunities to volunteer, collaborate and get involved with the global efforts of the Burning Man community — and this is the place to start.

You may wish to help with the creation of Black Rock City, and roles across every conceivable skill set are available year-round, at the event, or both. You may want to get involved with the year-round efforts of the nonprofit Burning Man Project, get engaged with global civic programs through Burners Without Borders, or tap into your local Burning Man community and its activities through the worldwide Regional Network.

If you want to work on a project (art or otherwise) or find people to work on yours, hop on the Spark system and find people looking to connect and collaborate across all fields of endeavor.

If you’re a software developer looking to create the next hot Burning Man app, take a look at our Innovation section, including APIs into historical Burning Man datasets.

Volunteer Opportunities


Direct personal engagement, both as individuals and as collaborators, is essential for manifesting change in the world. Whether one’s participation is in Black Rock City, in one’s local community through the Regional Network or globally, the impact will have a resonance beyond what is immediately observed. Burning Man offers a variety of ways to participate, regardless of one’s physical capabilities, skills, interests or geographical location. Make a difference: Participate!


Want to be a part of it? We regularly share opportunities to get engaged and participate in any of the Civic Programs and Burning Man Arts, so you can put your skills and interests to work to bring Burning Man to the world at large. What will YOU do? Get in touch to volunteer!

Also, there are always year-round opportunities to volunteer with our San Francisco Office Squad, Technology, and Special Events teams.
