From BMHQ: Call for Workshop/Speaker Series Topics & Leaders

The Burning Man Project is scheduling a series of free workshops and talks in 2013, designed to gift knowledge and skills on a peer-to-peer basis. You don’t have to be an experienced teacher: we’re looking for people from all walks of life to pass along knowledge and expertise on a non-commercial basis.

If you like teaching people a new skill, leading a discussion and bringing the ethos and principles of Burning Man to everyday life year-round, then please suggest a topic you would be interested in. Preferable topics are those that relate to the Burning Man ethos and Ten Principles in a year-round-context, rather than subjects that relate only to the playa.

We’re looking for workshop and speaker topics that don’t require participants to spend money on tools or supplies in order to participate. The ideal combination is a subject that gets people thinking and is hands-on, though the most important aspect is that it not be limited to what happens only in Black Rock City. Think expansively about your subject,
e.g., instead of a discussion on Gifting at Burning Man, better would be a workshop on How to Form a Gift Circle year-round.

Workshops and talks typically run about 1.5 to 2 hours and can be hosted on weekend days or weeknights. Most workshops will be hosted at our downtown headquarters at 995 Market St (but can be hosted off-site depending on the nature of the workshop). We are booking workshops/talks every month in 2013, so think ahead and suggest an idea – we’d love to hear from you now!

Please send your proposals to: workshops (at) burningmanproject (dot) org
