We’re a volunteer-run arts and education organization that celebrates personal initiative and responsibility. If you have an idea and are willing to work on it, you’ll find no shortage of willing volunteers. If you like to work on others’ projects, you’ll find no shortage of opportunities to lend a hand. If you prefer to cheer others on from the sidelines, that’s welcomed and encouraged too. Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute however they feel most comfortable.
Join this Website and Come to Church Night
The best way to get to know others in our community is to Join this website and come to our Weekly Church Night. As part of joining, you’ll be added to our email list and gain access to our ticket sales for events. Also, each Church Night features announcements on everything that’s going on in our community.
Jump into a Project
While we have some larger-scale projects like Unbroken Spring production and the Art Car/Mutant Vehicle that last months and always need help from a variety of people with a variety of skills, many smaller, shorter projects are often underway as well that need help too. Participating in projects is a great way to meet others over shared activities.
Attend a Burn
If interested, attending either the big burn or a regional burn is also a great start within our community. Come to Church Night to network with the people leading camps for these and make your interest in attending known. For example, check out our Houpla Burning Man Theme Camp. A big focus of this camp is getting new people to burns.
Once you’re more familiar with our community, you’ll find that even more opportunities for involvement open up to you. Just a few of these are described below.
Houston Burners Leadership
Our organization is always looking for new people to help manage areas of our community. We’re growing fast, and there’s lots to do.
Do you have an idea for a project, art-oriented or otherwise? All that’s needed is a willingness to volunteer time and see things through to completion.
Every event needs a number of volunteers, with many of the same roles needed across events. Training is sometimes essential for being effective in these roles. Here is a list of some of the opportunities to volunteer at Burning Man. Most regional burns also have many similar needs.
