2006 THEME CAMPS & VILLAGES
Walk with peace
My Theme Village for Burning Man involves the project: Walk With Peace. A big sail will be placed on the sand in the desert in Nevada. The sail is approximately 12 meter x 6 meter. Around the sail there are several cans with paint in all different kinds of colours, where people participating at Burning Man are invited to put their feet in the can and walk out on the sail painting their footprints for peace. The aim is to encourage people to walk with peace in mind on the sail thinking of all the people in the world, who are living in fear. The footprints on the sail will be a manifest of people walking with peace in their mind. The perspective is to bring the sail after Burning Man to places in the world, where people are living in fear. The sail should be shown for the people living here as the manifest that there is hope in the future. In this manner it is the goal that the sail will travel around the world giving hope to people living in a life with fear. This also sends a signal to the rest of the world living in peace that these people are in the need for hope for their future. Various humanitarian organisations will be contacted in order to make them facilitate the places in the world, who are in the greatest need for hope for the future. One small step for mani is one giant leap for mankind.

Having more fun than you since 2004! Wheeeee!villle is our collective gift to the Black Rock City, a place to share our passions, including drinks and fire, with whatever BRCitizens happen to wander by. Theme camps within the village will lure in unsuspecting dustmonkeys and enthrall them in a number of highly varied, moderately disturbed ways. Wheeeeeeee!villle is more a process than a place. It is a state of mind more than a state of physical matter. It comes to be in a toss of the hair and disappears on the breeze of an eyelid's flutter. Wheeee!villle is a thing that flies through the air between people and bounces off walls. What theme could we invent to capture the essence of this vanishing fantasy? Our theme camps include: Barbie Death Camp and Wine Bistro, BDRHQ, DonutLove, Scratch-Ass, and Smite Camp. The rest of the highly interactive lovelies are found in what we fondly refer to as LooseNutz.

When you see a star, do you make a wish? Do you wish for something for yourself? Someone else? Someone you love? Someone you hate? Something really big? Something smaller, and easier? Something that you can do yourself, without the aid of the wish??? Come to Camp Wishing Star, where you can make a wish which will be burned so it will ascend to join the other stars in the heavens.
