'Build something. Fly something. Float something. Burn something. Bring it to Kiwiburn.' http://www.kiwiburn.com/

This will be the 12th Kiwiburn. Come for the whole time, or as many days as you can. 

Many volunteers will be needed for the event, so think about how you can contribute. Built on the guiding principles of Burning Man, Kiwiburn is a collective experience. Everybody contributes, everybody pays. As there are no paid performers at the event, there are no spectators and what is shared are the passions and dreams of those who gift them. You do not "attend" Kiwiburn, you are a part of it. There is no money exchanged for anything at the event. You bring everything you need to survive. 

There will be art installations and people in costume, fire spinners, drummers... but that's just us, and what we are doing... bring your passion and share with us your dreams.

Art is an integral part of Kiwiburn, installation, performance, interactive.... the limit is your imagination... so get creating.... the 2015 art theme is WYRD - Kiwiburn has an art grants programme to help fund artwork... read more info about how to apply here: http://kiwiburn.com/art-grants and http://kiwiburn.com/applying-for-art-grants

KIWIBURN'S ART THEME FOR 2015 IS… WYRD

Congratulations to Pete 'Lumos' Wyatt for the idea - it was the most popular of the many inspiring ideas received. Thank you all! 

Lumos explains, "Wyrd is an Anglo Saxon and Norse word meaning everything in the universe is connected by a weave of intricate strands. It is our fates and our destiny. Who we are, what we are and what we are doing today is dependant on actions we have taken in the past. Everyday we are shaping our destiny and by the choices we make we are shaping others destiny for generations to come."

How would you illustrate this theme? We'll be announcing the details of our poster competition very soon!
