Civic Involvement Contact

In order to grow exposure and facilitate new and existing Civic initiatives, Burning Man Netherlands (BMNL) is looking for a Civic Involvement Contact who is an active and visible participant, to develop and represent our Civic Involvement Programs.

As a Civic Involvement Contact, you value civil society and your mission is to stimulate and initiate projects within the Burning Man community that contribute to civil society.

Your responsibilities are, amongst others:

  • Act as a liaison between the BMNL board and the Dutch Burner community regarding all Civic Involvement related projects
  • Help grow the Burning Man Netherlands Community
  • Initiate fundraisers, social art projects, communal gifting opportunities, etc.
  • Collaborate on civic projects with other local burn communities (example: Burners Without Borders initiatives)

Who are you?

You are a visible and active member of our Dutch community who feels inspired by the ethos and 10 Principles of Burning Man.

What’s in it for you?

The opportunity to be at the helm of one of the core Burning Man pillars: developing and steering an engaging and inspiring Civic Involvement programme that captures the imagination.

As with all positions within Burning Man Netherlands, this is a volunteer position. However, being the Contact for the BMNL Civic Involvement program will give you access to a vast network of enthusiastic good doers and engaged participants to help you develop.

Further, we can offer you educational programs from Burning Man Project, a place to create, learn and to be your true self!
