Event Details


AfrikaBurn Speakers : Monique Schiess and Robert Weinek

AfrikaBurn is an event that takes place in the Tankwa Karoo. It is a blank canvas that participants project onto what they want, as such It is defined by the fact that all those attending the event, make the event.  It is more a social experiment, than festival. Its a chance to invent the world anew. What happens out there is a an explosion of creativity, inventiveness, community, gifting, civic mindedness, where we create a gift economy. AfrikaBurn is going into its 7th incarnation and is an offshoot of the 25 year old Burning Man Festival that happens in Nevada USA.

Monique Schiess. After six and a half years in the desert Monique has a doctorate in driving rebar pegs into rock and shale and a PhD in the economics of artistic chaos and wrangling itinerant misfits and renegades. One of the founders of AfrikaBurn otherwise known as the original and still active coordinator of AfrikaBurn, she sees herself as a fire starter of sorts, an instigator and incubator of creative projects across the board. She was a partner in the Mother City Queer Projects, has two degrees in Environmental Science and Social Anthropology and had an incarnation as a game ranger.
