Welcome to Virtualisle, an online 10 Principles+ Thing on the Internet manifesting in whatever form your burner heart desires! We welcome the stranger and encourage your radical participation!
We invite our burners – our movers, our shakers, our doers – to help create a virtual world based on the 10 Principles of Burning Man for all of us to be a part of over the weekend of June 19-21, 2020.
Transitioning from the physical world to the online one has been a strange and glorious process so far for all of us. “How do we do this?” “Will anyone want to participate?” “How will this even be a burn?”
This Thing on the Internet we’re all putting our minds to has helped us acknowledge and push past boundaries, exposed us to new ideas, allowed us to develop novel skills, gave us both creased brows and happy crows feet, let us experience moments of both doubt and triumph, created space for untold fulfillment, and has put us in contact with like minded friends who we’ve shared some daytime sweat and some nighttime laughs with.
If that’s not what a burn is made of, we don’t know what is.
Within this virtual realm, this experiment in temporary community, you’ll find many useful tools you may need to help you or your camp do your Thing. If you have an idea but don’t quite know where or how to start, we invite you to reach out to us with your questions. We don’t want you to feel overwhelmed. There are many tools at our disposal and we’re finding potentially better ways to pull this off every day. We’ve written up a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) to help guide you through the process, we’ve created a number of signups specific to what you might like to do, and have a schedule that will auto-post every activity and event to the website so you know just when you and everyone else are going live.
We had no idea what we were doing when we started this, and no coherent vision to guide us forward through the uncertainty. This has never been done before. We’re all learning as we go. We invite you to come forward together with us.
