About the Regional Network

Burning Man is a network of people inspired by the values reflected in the Ten Principles and united in the pursuit of a more creative and connected existence in the world. Throughout the year we work to build Black Rock City, home of the largest annual Burning Man gathering, and nurture the distinctive culture emerging from that experience. The hub of this global network is the 501(c)(3) non-profit Burning Man Project, headquartered in San Francisco, California. The mission of the Burning Man organization is to facilitate and extend the culture that has issued from the Burning Man event into the larger world. The Burning Man organization will bring experiences to people in grand, awe-inspiring and joyful ways that lift the human spirit, address social problems and inspire a sense of culture, community and personal engagement.

The Burning Man Project

Burning Man founders have been discussing the concept of the non-profit Burning Man Project since the 1990s.  In 2011, organizers took the first step in creating a non-profit, forming a 16-member board consisting of the founders and burners with backgrounds in non-profit, arts, business and civic realms. Burning Man Project received its 501c3 status as a charitable organization in May 2012 and in the 19 months since then, the project has developed three primary areas of focus: outreach, building the business structure and testing demonstration projects.

Our outreach efforts are tailored to support the work of like-minded organizations and educate burners and the general project on the Project’s mission. We’ve done this locally and around the world with participation in Earth Day events, regional burns, at Everywhere Pavilion on the playa and as part of local community events like HeArt of Market in San Francisco.
