This event is how Burn2 collaborates as part of an online program by the Bay Area Burners - a new fangled, old fashioned Friday night social. They have planned virtual activities such as a 10 Principles Game Show, a drawing salon, digital art and performances hosted by Burners in Burn2 (yes! our virtual regional), or dance among friends in a safe and encouraging online creative space with stunning visual artistry. There will be a documentary film about Burning Man showing on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about this and other events, check the following links:
