These simple words are what you can expect to feel when you participate with Midwest Burners. Don’t worry, we will make sure you’re radically included in the plenty of opportunities to create, help volunteer, and actively participate in the 10 principles of Burning Man.
Midwest Burners’ events, art grants, and community outreach programs are designed to share the ethos and culture of Burning Man with the Midwest. Our friendly Midwestern culture and unique regional flavor are our special gifts we love giving to all members of the Burning Man community. We’ve had participants join us at our Regional Burns from all over the world. Come to one of our Regional Burns and you’ll understand why tickets sell fast!
Our goal is to enable the expression of art, culture, and positive social values in a unique environment that allows people the freedom to discover their full human potential. We accomplish this by producing burn events, providing grants for art and leadership, providing free training and education, and enabling a community to take the principles of Burning Man and make a positive impact wherever they are from. Anyone who joins us is encouraged to take what they learn and share it not just at Burns, but all year round, and bring the principles of Burning Man home to their default lives in their own communities.
Midwest Burners is the 501(c)3 Charitable Organization that facilitates this through it’s mission.
