A message from the Everywhere/ARTery Activation Team team at Burning Man for anyone heading to Black Rock City this year:
Greetings Burners around the World! We’re calling on you to help artfully activate the Everywhere/ARTery Pavilion with performance, art, and interactive experiences.
What is the Everywhere/ARTery Pavilion?
Operated by Burning Man Project, the Pavilion is a hub showcasing projects and initiatives sparked by the 10 Principles in Black Rock City. We are seeking art, performance, and participatory experiences drawn from the Burning Man Global Network to inspire and illustrate how Burning Man is a year-round and global cultural movement. You can visit the Pavilion on 6:15 and Esplanade.
Bonus points for art, performance or content that is dynamic, interactive, fun, delightful, approachable, surprising and inspires curiosity.
Ways to Participate…
Visual & Installation Artists
We are seeking visual art both 2D and 3D, which can either be free-standing on the ground or on pedestals, displayed on walls throughout the space, or suspended from the Pavilion ceiling. Bonus points if your art has been featured at an official regional event. Art must arrive in Black Rock City and be ready for installation by Sunday, August 26th. If your piece is departing from the San Francisco Bay Area, we may be able to help with its transport. Sorry, no flame effects in the Pavilion. 🙁
Each day we will curate a lineup of unique, up-close n’ personal performances. Circus performers, magicians, storytellers, puppeteers, musicians with unusual instruments, jugglers, poets, dancers, will be showcased in an intimate stage environment. The best fit would be small acts: solo, duo, trio ensembles in a warm, low-tech setting, setting the mood for an incredible day.
