Burning Japan is made by participants. Not metaphorically, actually and literally. Participants visit the site before for preparation, organize the cite, bring all kinds of art and performance. Most of everything is made in the community. It is not a festival you come in and have fun, it is more of an event that requires a year round preparation that happens to be fun. Therefor we host Meetups and online space that is to have participants communicate before the event.
You can make a group for camping together, making art and building a theme camp. Or you can join the organizers from the first year. Why don’t you come visit our online space and see what’s all about.
It’s sad but true that we can’t host offline Meetups in 2021, so please come to online Meetups in stead,
Discord BurningJapan Server
From 2021, Burning Japan is using Discord for online Meetups, Theme camp coordination, Volunteer coordination as well as organizers’ meetings. Most of the preparation that can be done online happens on Discord.
Discord is a multi channel text chat service like Slack and is combined with Zoom for fun use. It is meant to set up a designated communication space for a community.
To participate Discord Burning Japan Server, you need to be invited by the member or check the invitation link for access.
Every Thursday night, we host a meetup from 9:30PM. Click on “meetup_voice” to join the voice chat. It’s voice only so please feel free to join for the first time. You don’t have to speak up, listening only account is welcome, too.
Beside the weekly meetups, you can check what’s going on at any time by following the text chat. Come check us out and leave a comment on #meetup_English. Questions will be answered much faster here 😉
