Tens of thousands of people gather in northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary and vibrant metropolis, dedicated to community, art, self-reliance and self-expression. Burning Man is a practice in community; “Burners” create art, exchange ideas, and participate in the burning of the Man, a symbol whose meaning is as varied as the attendees themselves.
