Get Involved

 Wherever you are and whatever your skills, there are plenty of exciting opportunities to volunteer, collaborate and get involved with the global efforts of the Burning Man community — and this is the place to start.

You may wish to help with the creation of Black Rock City, and roles across every conceivable skill set are available year-round, at the event, or both. You may want to get involved with the year-round efforts of the non-profit Burning Man Project, get engaged with global civic programs through Burners Without Borders, or tap into your local Burning Man community and its activities through the worldwide Regional Network.

If you want to work on a project (art or otherwise) or find people to work on yours, hop on the Spark system and find people looking to connect and collaborate across all fields of endeavour.

If you’re a software developer looking to create the next hot Burning Man app, take a look at our Innovation section, including APIs into historical Burning Man datasets.

 “Volunteering my time for Burning Man was the best way I could contribute to the community that has given me so much. Rather than purchasing physical gifts that I could give to a small number of people, I can gift my skills, supporting the entire community. And at the same time, I've made great friends, learned new skills, and discovered that I was capable of so much more than I knew. It's just been an incredible experience.”- B.C, Burning Man Volunteer

 Since its inception in 1986, Burning Man‘s very existence has depended upon on people generously gifting their time, energy, and resources to make the event happen. No matter your skills or interests, there's a way for you to participate in the creation and manifestation of Burning Man, both at the events and through all year-round activities in your area.

You'll find answers to the most frequently asked questions about volunteering in the Volunteer FAQ. It's important to note that, unlike most mainstream festivals, volunteering for Burning Man is not typically associated with any material reward or ticket; as a community-driven event operating in the spirit of the Ten Principles, volunteering is a form of participation, gifting and civic responsibility.

It's safe to say that without the dedicated volunteers who gift their precious time and talents to our community, Burning Man simply could not happen. So, thank you!
