Burning Man is an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance that takes place annually in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada, USA.

The Burning Man event is guided by ten principles: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation and immediacy.
