Event Details

Larry Harvey, Founder, Burning Man
In conversation with Josh McHugh, President, Attention Span Media; President, INFORUM’s Board of Directors
Extreme self-reliance, artistic expression and radical community: These are just a few ways to describe the annual Burning Man experience that takes place in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. More than 50,000 people gather, barter, build and participate in a cultural experiment with almost no limits. How does the Burning Man experience address consumerism, art and society in today’s world? How has Burning Man’s two-year-old San Francisco headquarters impacted those who participate in the experience? How do participants carry on the Burning Man spirit in their daily lives? Join us as Burning Man founder Larry Harvey provides an inside peek into what makes Burning Man a unique and impactful experience.
