This is our very popular annual artist lecture series, where you get a sneak preview of some of the many notable art projects in progress right now for Burning Man 2012. You’ll hear directly from artists who are creating revolutionary works of art, often in radically collaborative ways. Some have been doing work on the playa many years and will be sharing humorous war stories associated with creating art under extreme conditions. This is also a great opportunity to learn how YOU can get involved and support these and other artists and projects.

If you can’t make it, look up their projects at the link below and directly contact these and other artists/projects you feel inspired to help and work with. Get involved and help make the art you wish to see in the world!

    It would be great if this lecture could be broadcast online so more people could watch it. Or maybe could it be made into a podcast?

    Heard a rumor that the BMORG announced last night that more tickets will be released into STEP. Any truth to that?

    I heard that rumor too from a good source, but since I was not present at the Q&A i will not say for sure that the “more tickets going to STEP” comment is accurate. But it appears you heard the same thing I did.
