This weekend I’m attending Art Outside for the first time. Art Outside is not a Burning Man event, but rather a commercial arts and music festival inspired in part by the spirit of the playa. There are vendors, and paid performers, but it also tries to invoke much of the creative spirit and diversity of our beloved events.
I am volunteering at the main stage, where I get to learn new skills and hear cool music and presentations. I’ll probably be camping in the Volunteer Village area, so you can probably find me in either place. I love to hear from my readers and fans at festivals; if you like Approximately 8,000 Words, A Burner Lexicon, or whatever else I do, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to say hello.
Tickets are still on sale for a day or the whole weekend. If you’re not going, look for Kit Q&A tomorrow. I’ll be back in reality camp Monday, hopefully with a full report and lots of photos!
