Venice Afterburn is back!
After a long pandemic break, The Venice Beach based, Official Regional Burning Man event will take place on October 23rd ad 24th, 2021 between 12pm and 10pm.
This 2 day event re-creates the magic of the Black Rock playa to our 'default' world, celebrates the culture of Burning Man and its principles, honoring the spirit of community, creative collaboration and self expression, as well as encouraging the attendees to be participants and not just spectator.
We create a space for burners to share their art, art cars, gifts, music, and to bring back the community together that we so much love.
The event is open to all participants, burners or not; it blends the vibrant, eclectic community of Venice Beach with the creativity of the Black Rock citizens.
The Venice Afterburn is produced by non profit organization 'Dogtown Artists United' (501c3) and is ran mostly by volunteers.
Unfortunately, due to Covid19 we were not able to raise enough funds to produce the event and had to cancel our usual fundraising events for the past 18 months. This has taken a huge toll on the ability to fulfill the Covid19 City of LA requirements, as well as the usual logistic expenses.
We ask the Burner community to contribute financially to make this happen. Anything helps; the funds will be used to pay for travel expenses to some art cars that we really want to attend, as well as more boring things such as fencing, security, power and distro, which are all unfortunately very pricey but without them we could not make the event happen.
We thank you for the bottom of our hearts and we hope to see on you Windward Plaza on October 23rd and 24th!
