Thanks to everyone who supported one or all three Artumnal Gathering events on November 17th. Special thanks to Airpusher Collective and Black Rock City Roller Disco for producing events in support of Burning Man Project’s Art and Civic Engagement Programs.

We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to you, as well as the artists, volunteers, auction donors, Host Committee, Auction Committee, and performers that supported Artumnal Gathering events.

It was a joy to see radical self-expression, communal effort, gifting, and immediacy in action throughout the evening. We hope you enjoy this look back through time and enjoy photos from the evening, thanks to the following talented photographers:

The Artumnal Gathering Time(less) Machine Dinner & Auction

Burning Man Project cordially invites you to The Artumnal Gathering Time(less) Machine Dinner and Auction, an annual celebration of collaborators, artists, makers, creators, and inspirational communities of the worldwide Burning Man culture.

Step into our Time(less) Machine, a banquet of temporal experiences and a kaleidoscope of human expression and participation. All golden eras of art, ideas, and culture are welcome, as are states of play, passion, and eternal presence.  Enjoy timeless art and performance as we invoke imagination in its purest forms, traveling across dimensions and beyond limitation.

Time is not the measure of one’s experience or a life well-lived, and yet we sometimes pay more attention to time than we do to purpose and passion. In contrast, when we are in a “flow state” and truly experiencing Immediacy, we lose track of the minutes and hours and experience a kind of wakeful satisfaction and fulfillment that exists beyond time, place, and measure.

Dress festively and in whatever period of dress inspires you most. If you like, also bring an experience to share with others that helps you to be in a state of creative flow. You might even plan a theme for your entire table!

Following the dinner festivities, you can dance the night away at Terra Gallery, or you can continue the evening’s celebration in a whimsical experience of music, movement and community at Airpusher’s Artumnal Gathering Celebration. Airpusher is producing this event as a joint fundraiser for Burning Man Project and Airpusher Collective.

Artumnal Gathering proceeds directly support Art and Civic Engagement programs that nurture a global spectrum of projects and partnerships inspired by the art and community of Black Rock City and beyond. Programs include Art Management, such as fire arts, and Honoraria Art Grants for the annual Burning Man event, Civic Arts, Global Art Grants, the Global Network, Burners Without Borders, and more. Thank you for your support of this important work.

Your generosity will fuel the ongoing mission of Burning Man Project, a nonprofit organization that believes in a world of creativity, participation, and self-expression. Every day we provide support for the regional network, artists, volunteers, and our community across the globe because we know that the transformative experiences that happen in Black Rock City are inspiring a world of change.
