‘this year’s theme is a celebration of change, and an exploration of uncertainty. as such it invites a consideration of time; not its circular nature, or its attendant ritual, but in this case the relentless flight of time’s arrow, and an embrace of the elusive now. memory is fickle, and the future is uncertain. none of us knows what he or she will become, but we can seek to understand where we are at this point in our transformative trajectory, this fleeting chord on the strings of existence.’

‘tansformation happens whether we believe in it or not; but if we have learned anything in our burning man experience it is that we do have a say in our own futures, that agency is ours if we choose to pursue it. while we may never know the ultimate outcome, there is a shared belief that our dreams matter, and that together and as individuals we have the power to shape our own stories and transform ourselves in positive ways.’  burning man official webpage.
