We are all about play! Bring something enjoyable and interactive to share with the community such as yoga, jewelry making, art car design, dance, or flow arts! Teach others about healthy relationship building or how to travel around the world without money. Playshops are a platform for playful learning; a way for our community to come together and share knowledge, experiences, skills, and ideas. These can be about anything, limited by your imagination only!
YOUtalks are similar to the popular TEDx talks. These talks will be a platform for anyone to present interesting and well-formed ideas in 30 minutes or less on topics that are pertinent to our local community and the world at large. Specifically, a good idea for a talk takes into consideration certain evidence or observations and draws a larger, meaningful conclusion. You are especially encouraged to develop YOUtalks that reflect the Burning Man 10 Principles. If you are interested in giving a YOUtalk, please fill out the application form, and list YOUtalk in part of your title or description.
YOUtopia is a great place for you to express your inner creativity and perform! In addition to Center Camp stage, there are many spaces throughout the city that can host your performance! Modeled on the principles of Burning Man, YOUtopia doesn’t pay performers or musicians to come to the event. Instead, it provides a blank canvas where you can explore your creativity and imaginative ideas.
