It’s hard sometimes to explain why Burning Man and regionals are a community, and not just festivals or scenes. I think this pledge challenge by Burners Without Borders goes a long way in explaining it.
I will assert myself and apply my myriad talents toward the achievement of radical self-reliance, uncompromising self-expression, immediate participation, and unlimited inclusion. Whether I do this through building community, advancing the arts, aiding disaster relief, gifting alternative energy, greening the planet, or some other means, I will be a badass from now on.
Will you bring it?
