Every summer Burning Man participants (aka Burners) meet in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada to re-engage with their community, and to celebrate shared values of radical self-expression and self-reliance. They join together to celebrate the power of community, honor the importance of art, and enjoy the immediacy of experience.
But that experience and those values don’t get left behind in the desert. They simply inform who they are, and how they interact with the larger world. Burners Without Borders (BWB) is a manifestation of what can happen when those values are transported off the playa and out into the rest of the world.
Project HOPE Art has joined forces with BWB to extend our reach in promoting our Visiting Artist Program and to collaborate with their artist contacts both on the ground in Haiti and in the United States.
