The Temple of Transition at Burning Man 2011 - a temple by the community, for the community.
Over the past 11 years, the Temple at Burning Man has evolved and grown to become a place of reflection, of remembrance and letting go; a place of union, gathering, and peacefulness. From every corner of the Burning Man Community, an International Arts Megacrew is coming together to create this year's Temple for our desert family - The Temple of Transition.
We commit to creating a structure that enables and affirms these differing types of activities for as wide a range of participants as possible. We believe that the Temple, and the experiences within & around it, are created not by us (the builders), but by our Community as the event unfolds. What we call “The Temple” is a collective Idea, a Feeling, an Aura projected from the Participants onto the blank template of the building itself. It is therefore our mission to create the Temple as an empty, yet simultaneously beautiful, inspiring, and supportive vessel, that gently suggests & enables Participants to both feel & interact with it's intangible essence.
At Burning Man, we all have a part to play in each others amazing journey of self-discovery, selflessness, and release that enables us to explore both our collective & individual Rites of Passage. By supporting the Temple of Transition through a small donation, you not only get some pretty delicious schwag, but the deeper reward of knowing that you have gifted something magical and inspiring for everyone to share in.
This project will be constructed in Reno, Nevada. The build will start in early May and, as we want to hit the ground running, we will be requiring fast initial funding to set up this base and also procure tools and materials to begin the first step along this wonderful journey. Although we will continue to fundraise all the way up to our departure for playa, making a donation now will ensure this project gets off to the flying start it needs...
Thank you for your support,
IAM - International Arts Megacrew
