Based on the 10 Principles of Burning Man, these annual events draw participants from all over the world.
Events are based on an organizational structure similar to that of New Zealand’s KiwiBurn with volunteers filling roles of administrative staff, an executive committee, and an event operations committee. Departments of event volunteers provide operational logistics, from our community Rangers, to our gate teams, to our Leave No Trace (LNT) teams that ensure any property we visit is left in at least the same condition as we found it.
For federal income tax purposes, participants may deduct as a charitable contribution the price paid for each event ticket/invitation, minus its fair market value of $15.00 (2017).
Membership in the collective of artists and co-creators is free and voluntary; the only requirement being previous volunteer experience or a current desire to become involved.
An annual pledge of $50 or more helps provide funding for art grants and programs designed to benefit the interactive arts community throughout the Southeast. Become a Mandarin Member Today.
We believe that by supporting Interactive Art, we grow community and build Social Capital. We promote the arts, not for profit, but to grow connections and strengthen the community.
In addition to providing funding for these important programs, your membership helps strengthen our community by representing the Interactive Arts Community and the importance of interactive art to the community at large.
