San Mateo Hosting Free Panel on Burner-Style Urban Life


On Wednesday, May 14, Burning Man founder Michael Mikel and a few other Burner artists and organizers are coming to San Mateo, CA for a panel entitled “Building and Inspiring the Community You Envision.” The panel will discuss how Burner values can guide and inspire urban life and growth on and off the playa. The City of San Mateo invites the community to participate as part of San Mateo Innovation Week from May 12-16. It’s the first city on the Peninsula to partner with the Burning Man Project.

The panel also includes Karen Cusolito, Oakland artist and founder of American Steel Studios; Dr. Mike North, host of the Discovery Channel’s Prototype This! and founder of ReAllocate; and Ilana Lipsett, co-founder of Freespace. Stuart Mangrum, Education Director of the Burning Man Project, will facilitate.

    It would be great if this was recorded and made available online for those of us who are very interested but can’t make it there.

    Or, if a webcast could be set-up, that would be great too.

    I teach on Wed night but am stoked that you are recording it…you might consider having people name communities that incorporate or are trying to incorporate elements of the principles, and also, how we can support each other in those efforts!

    I live in a 60 person cohousing community in Santa Cruz, and cohousing is an interesting overlap with the principles.

    burn on!

  • If that’s not possible, you can take a section of your hair and wrap it around the
    band to hide it and tuck it under to hold the hair
    in place. If you have seen the movie ‘Curly Sue’, the
    little girl’s hair is very long and curly, but what many
    parents need to understand is that it can get tangled,
    knotted up, and very dirty. Some finishing wax applied
    very lightly and you will have perfect sedu celebrity hairstyles every time.
