Burn in the Forest 2019
Burn In The Forest (BitF) is the Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society’s (GVIAS) Official Burning Man Regional annual summer event.
1500 participants come together to create a Temporary Autonomous Zone
inspired by the Ten Principles of Burning Man
Our community is built on the participation of its members – from the simple exchange of food, stories, or a lending hand, to the elaborate construction of an interactive art project.
- We support the diversity and experimentation of experience and ideas.
- We will create a Temporary Autonomous Zone where people may safely engage in new experiences without judgement.
- We will strengthen existing friendships and build new ones, rewarding each other in special ways.
- We are self-sufficient and leave no trace except in our memories.
This year, as in the past, we will build a temporary community over an extended weekend. Together we create a village and gift each other in many ways that express our creativity and play.
