OFFICIAL 2017 NEWBIE ORIENTATIONS
[Updated-ish May 17, 2017]
If this is your first time going to the desert or maybe you have been once and want a little more information, this is for you!
Bring your paper and pens and all your questions - we'll do our best to answer them and more!
Depending on the location, you may need to bring your own chair, snacks, and beverages - it's a lot of info, but it'll make your first (or second, or third!) year at the burn MUCH easier. 🙂
There are several documents to help bring you up to speed. Please print them out and bring your questions to the orientation.
Also super handy is the "First Timers Guide" on the Burning Man website. This will help answer many of your questions before heading out to the desert. http://www.burningman.com/first_timers/
There will be three official orientations in 2017... we're a little behind on nailing down details, but these are the dates (May 21 is coming up soon!)
May 21, 2017 -
June 11, 2017 -
July 16, 2017 - Very likely to be at The Other Door in Burbank, we usually do the last one there....
As soon as we have more details, we'll post them:
If you are a veteran and want to lead a section of the orientation, we'd love to have your help! Just contact us! LA@burningman.org
