We’ve compiled some video, articles and photo galleries from Midburn, Israel’s first official Burning Man regional event. Produced by the Israeli Burning Man community, Midburn took place June 3-7 2014 in Israel’s Negev desert, where over 3000 participants gathered to celebrate creativity, art, self-expression and community.

Here’s a fantastic Midburn photo gallery from Ha’aretz, some great photojournalism from Shawn Saleme of Visual News, and coverage from the Associated Press (which got picked up by just about every major news outlet in the world).

Here’s Bear Kittay’s video, featuring interviews with Midburn participants talking about the significance of the event:
