1. Burning Man
Nevada’s Black Rock Desert
August 29- September 5 2015
Burning Man is a one of a kind gathering that brings together tens of thousands of participants to create Black Rock City in Nevada's Black Rock Desert; dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. After an enlightening week in the desert, the participants depart having created unbelievable artistic experiences, and leaving no trace whatsoever- burning everything to the ground (hence the name burning man). The intention is to generate a society that connects each individual to his or her creative powers, to bring about participation in community both in the larger realm of civic life, and to the even greater world of nature that exists beyond society.
