MORE SESSION DETAILS
Every August, the Bay Area goes a little quieter as a significant chunk of its artists, innovators, seekers, and psychonauts head to the Black Rock Desert — but for what? Is it a festival? An ephemeral city? A bacchanal? A social sculpture? Join planners, artists, and Burning Man Project staff in learning more about this event, the community that surrounds it, and the ways that Burning Man shapes public art, culture, and city planning back in the “default world.”
