BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man Regional, the only virtual world Regional out of more than 100 Regional groups worldwide, and the only Regional to burn the Man!
This unique virtual Regional spreads the culture and Ten Principles of Burning Man year-round in Second Life, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall - a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
BURN2 OctoBurn: da Vinci's Workshop October 15-23, 2016
We are so excited! Planning for the Big Burn we’ve all been waiting for is now getting well underway. As is often our custom, we follow the theme that Burning Man announces, and this year it is Da Vinci’s Workshop. You can read the full description of the theme as written by Larry Harvey and Stuart Mangrum, at Burning Man's website. We had a poster contest and the posters were all so good that four winners were selected rather than just one, shown below. We will use all four posters for distributing the news inworld and online.
