We at G.L.E.A. hope your Lakes of Fire 2014 experience was chock full o’ glory; that your kraken has been fully released, and that your modest sunburn has dissipated. It’s not always easy to transition from Lakes of Fire into your “normal life,” (ha ha ha, or whatever) but we hope you have found decompressing into the day-to-day to be relatively painless, and free of soul-crushing despair. We lofers may need a day of adjustment or two, but we'll all be calling the so-called "Default World" by the more fun title of "Planet Awesome" soon. After all, the Man burns in just 60 days!
If you lost something at RELEASE THE KRAKEN, it's quite possible that it was found. We are still collecting all the information as to what was unclaimed. A great place to starting looking on-line, though, is Lakes of Fire's Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/200999036580559/
GRATITUDE: Thank you!
They say that Gratitude is the Eleventh Burning Man principle, and after such an amazing weekend, it's hard to know where to start. Thank you, Lakes of Fire community, for bringing it so incredibly well to RELEASE THE KRAKEN! To the Volunteers, the Participants, Theme Camps, Artists, and moties of every stripe, make and model - YOU are what makes Lakes of Fire the gorgeous event that it is. From our heart of hearts, we at Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc., want to thank you for being such an amazing community. We love you, and thank you for your participation!
In particular, your friends at the Fire Art and Safety Team (F.A.S.T.) would like to thank all the fire artists who participated. Not only did you make the event more fun, but you did so in safe and sane manner. GRATITUDE!
Your friendly volunteer coordinators would like to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated any amount of their time to make the event happen. Without you, there just ain’t no Lakes of Fire, which is no fun at all! GRATITUDE!
PICS 'N' VIDS: Keep 'em coming!
The pictures and videos are already starting to come on-line, especially at Lakes of Fire's Facebook Group, found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/200999036580559/, and the Event Page, found here, https://www.facebook.com/events/1403530759887142/ . Typically Event Page starts to get pretty quiet after a week or so, but that first one, the group, runs year round and is a great way to stay in contact with your Lakes of Fire community.
Please recall that Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc., may choose to use your photographs or videos online, explicitly for the purposes of promoting Lakes of Fire. Your images and videos will NEVER be sold or commodified in any way, and if we use yours, we'll credit you!
SURVEY: Let us know!
Your friends at Lakes of Fire are already looking forward to next year, but we'd be crazy if we didn't take a few moments to reflect upon 2014, and your participation is definitely needed! Just take a few moments to fill out this important survey, so that your friends at Lakes of Fire's organizing Team Lead committee know where we need to improve for next year. Please fill out this critical participant survey! [INSERT SURVEY LINK HERE]
Thanks again to all who made this year’s event a reality. We hope to see you at Burning Man 2014: Caravansary, or at Lakes of Fire 2015!
