To the BURN2 Community

Dear BURN2 Community,

We appreciate your patience during the temporary closure of the SIM and are happy to inform of progress in finding our way through to the place where agreements can be seen, heard and understood. In the interim, Deep Hole will continue to remain closed for the month of June.

The growth of our community relies on evolution and development, and sometimes leadership’s chosen ways of doing are not always agreed upon and require changes and concessions. This is not a fast and easy process. As many a burner has said "It was better next year" meaning we all never get to go back to the same Burning Man twice.

Let's remember Burn2 is a separate community from all the others, we live and exist in a space that is not well understood by our peers and yet we have come so far to continue in our growth, we all want to see our world prosper and we are working on ways we can become more agreeable and kinder. This will take the village to do so. Thank you for your patience and understanding to keep the region closed to reduce additional conflicts and distress while we work on the current goals. Remember to respect each other always.

Rest assured: Deep Hole will be reopening by July 31st, 2022.
For now, there are things to do outside of Burn2.
