Why Participate? . . . from Ten Guiding Principles of Burning Man:

Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger.
No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Gifting
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional.
Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce,
promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods
of communication that support such interaction.

Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume
responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities
to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events
in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
