What you can do!

Do you want to participate year round, or take the lead at one of our events?

Our positions


Whether you are a newbie or a pro, you know that participation is key to a warm community and great events. It’s not only a great way to get to know our community and the Burning Man Principles and events, but it is also the only way we organize things.

Burning Man exists solely because of contributions to and from our community. Whether these contributions are made manifest in funds, labor, artwork, or other forms; they are the fuel that powers our work in the world. If you don’t participate, there will be no event nor community.

Burning Man NL events have 5 main Event Teams called Production, Operations, Community, Logistics and Arts & Entertainment. Each team has several roles that require both Leads, co-leads, and General Participants. These roles are fundamental to the production of our events. They are a fabulous way to get to know our community and can help you hone or learn new skills. These roles require a variety of pre-event and on-site contribution, depending on your availability.

During events

Other ways to participate are through creating an art project, running a theme camp, coordinating an activity or sparking up your own creativeness on site.

Every event there is space and time for art, performances, music, and workshops. Together we make the event what it is.

If you are able to come to an event early or stay late at an event, please participate in Build or Strike.

We always need help with Gate & Greeting, Info Hub, Rangers and the all-important Leave No Trace (LNT)!
