WHAT IS TIKI ISLAND
Tiki Island is the Playa Surfer's interactive art car. An amazing daytime musical instillation, and our camp's frontage on the Esplanade at Burning Man. At night, it seeks out a new home in deep playa to entertain visitors from other far of lands.
Possibly the Playa’s widest art car to date, Tiki Island will serve as a beacon to your very own island paradise. Come enjoy our fantastic DJs, on board lounge, overnight dancing, and fire spinning performances.
It just so happens that in this amazingly diverse local community, we do know a metal fabricator or two, an automotive expert, some nice girls with an interest in learning how to use various power tools, a handful of engineers, tinkers, dreamers, and also just those few good folks with no construction skills whatsoever, who show up with the snacks and refreshments! By combining our friends, families, and networks, we know someone in every industry or walk of life, who could take joy from contributing to this project.
Right now, the energy and generosity of those members are fueling our passion to build in these initial stages. That's where you come in! For those phases in which we still need help, we have this Kickstarter fundraiser so Burners, neighbors, friends and family can all contribute to the project, no matter their skill set or physical location!
There are many reasons to support Tiki Island and here are just a few: Help support local artists, fabricators, and grow our community. By donating and lending a hand, you keep the juices flowing to our amazing artists so they may keep creating.
Let's get this Island out to the Playa!
The more money we raise, the more epic the Island will be! The funds we are asking for in this Kickstarter are for specific portions of this project:
Materials: (Metals, Lumber, Bamboo, Paint & Fabric for Island skirt)
Mile-high lookout (level 3)
DJ tower (level 2)
On board lounge (level 1) & beverage area
Huge fake rocks for seating and decor
Hand-cut, metal palm trees & shrubs
Visual elements such as lighting
Sound system to bring the beats
Every person that physically or financially touches this project will leave their unique mark, and be a part of something artistic, which hugely contributes to the happiness of others! By donating, you've paid forward an enjoyable experience and environment for others. Naturally, we hope you can also join us in person! Thank you so much for taking a peek at our project! We hope to add your name to our growing list of supporters!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is funding. Help us clear this last hurdle by donating now! Completing Tiki Island requires everyone on the team push their own limits on creativity, critical thinking, and personal growth. With a project of this magnitude, we need regular support and effort from our donors and campers to see it through to the end! Fortunately, we have an amazing leadership team, group of designers, builders, and various sources for our materials that will spur us on to completion!
