Hey everyone. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Burning Man made the decision to pull the plug on this years event. Its been tough grappling with the reality of the situation which is that there is really no way to have the event safely without some very dramatic changes to our situation. We've been having this discussion behind the scenes in leadership for the last week and it was a relief to see the org make the call which we were dreading to make on our own.
I know that a lot of us have purchased DGS tickets and are wondering about refunds. I can tell you that refunds will be made available very soon.
We will be providing a full refund of camp dues to everyone who has sent them thus far. Leadership is currently working out a barebones budget we need to kick the can down the road and next steps will be getting together fundraising to cover those costs. It shouldn't be much. Ballpark is like 2 grand for Sojourner storage and Insurance.
There is talk of a 'Virtual' Burning Man. I have no fucking idea what thats going to be. No one has any idea what the fuck its going to be. If you think you would be interested in virtual Burning Man you can let me know and I'll try to keep people in the loop as to what Mycodelic Forest's plans are.
Even if Burning Man isn't happening, we can all live Burning Man right here in default world. Do what you can to help others and embody the 10 principles. Remember that we are all here for each other. Like seriously. If you need help, ask and we'll network that shit. <3
