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 event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups, and the only Regional to burn the Man!
The BURN2 Team spreads Burning Culture and Burning Man Ten Principles 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.
To access BURN2 in Second Life, you will need a Second Life viewer installed on a computer that meets software and hardware requirements, and we suggest a broadband Internet connection of 2Mbps or better. To find BURN2 once you're logged in, do a map search for Burning Man. You can't miss us!

Color Outside Of The Lines brings a May explosion of creation and celebration of mother to the Virtual Playa!
In remembrance of the time of our early beginnings: Paper, empty as our abilities, was given to us along with crayons. So we created art. As paint boxes and coloring books appeared, we still created art, now of structure and less of our first faltering attempts. As we grew in our art, “She” (our mother figure) was always at our sides, guiding us, praising us, swift with tape and magnets to post our results upon fridges.
She was always there to encourage us and to push us further to use chalk, clay, and anything that came to hand. She was our muse and sponsor, and always gave us permission to COLOR OUTSIDE OF THE LINES.
Join us May 24th and 25th for a two-day event with music and collaborative creative art building. Celebrate the act of art creation and the role of Her (our mother figure).
The Playa will OPEN to the public at NOON on FRIDAY, May 24th until MIDNIGHT May 25th at Burning Man- Deep Hole.
Drum, Play, Celebrate: Come join the Lamplighters each day to drum and perform. There are no bystanders.
Create, Share, Keep: Small creative areas are setup for participants to "color outside of the lines" by moving the different shaped objects supplied or adding their own to a group art piece that will only last four hours (take a copy! quick!).
Join us, free your inner Burner, and once again explore art and honor the mother muse we all have.
