Most participants leave Black Rock City hoping to extend their experience and impatiently wait to return the following year -- it's natural to want such stimulation and creativity to continue after so connective an experience. Burning Man is not a select club, or a clique, or a closed subculture. It is a tapestry, an ever-widening network of actions and relationships extending far beyond the place called Black Rock City.

Many find their interests and behavior change after the event, and as a growing number of people integrate Burning Man principles into their lives, ours is rapidly becoming a global community sharing a way of being in the world. This section of the website will help you take lessons learned in Black Rock City back home, connect with other Burners, and join in the effort to create our collective future, year-round.

Black Rock City is a place. Burning Man is an experience. Being a "Burner" is a way of being in the world. We are not limited to living Burning Man culture by a physical location anchored to a certain time and a particular place. We live our lives more expressively wherever we are — and whenever we connect with one another we make this happen.

Burning Man happens year-round. It's a deep artesian well with channels flowing out from it. It is a movable feast that might happen anywhere, at any time. Black Rock City — Burning Man — is YOU, wherever you may be.

Burning Man Regional Groups are the nexus of an active and vibrant global community, supporting those who wish to keep the fire alive year-round.

Whether through the ePlaya, the Burning Blog, Facebook or Twitter, there are myriad ways to connect with your fellow Burners online.
