Popup Theme Camps
Radical Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity
From the Burning Man Project Website: As an organization that believes the world’s a better place with Burning Man in it, and one that’s committed to spreading the culture that comes from Black Rock City throughout the world, we have a long way to go when it comes to race and diversity. As a culture that preaches the virtues of diversity, equality, and Radical Inclusion, the fact remains that our community and spaces are predominantly white. The barrier to entry for Burning Man experiences is often dictated by privilege, and we’re committed to changing this.

The Great Unknown is the announced theme for Burning Man in 2021.

This is a play place to list places and regional or local events that may evolve between now and Burn Week.
