Unbroken Spring's Almost Here

Our Houston regional burn, Unbroken Spring, is right around the corner! A lot is going on as we're in the final stretch preparing for the event taking place March 16-19th.

Tickets and Volunteers
Tickets to UBS are currently sold out! But the population cap is set by the level of volunteer participation. More volunteers mean more tickets get released! Sign up to volunteer by going to the Volunteer Signup Google doc and commenting. (Instructions--click on the Department tab. Choose your preferred shift. Click on the cell for the shift. Click on the comment button, and then enter you name and email.)

Survival Guide
The UBS 2017 Survival Guide is out! Inside is everything you need to know about UBS.

Final Work Weekend
Want to help with installation? Have a theme camp you need to set up? Bringing an art project, dance floor or other cool something that needs help setting up? Volunteer to help out with the installation weekend at the event site in Dayton.

Crafting at the Warehouse
Work at the Burner Warehouse on art for UBS continues! The next craft night is this Wednesday during Church Night, with another crafting session on Sunday.
All About Burning Man Church Night

New to Burning Man? Want to go for the first time? This Wednesday's Church Night will tell you everything you need to know to get started with your planning starting at 8PM.

Topics will include:
  • Tickets
  • Transportation
  • Gear
  • Food/Drink
  • Costumes
  • What's It Like
Folks will be on-hand to answer all your questions. We'll also have some sample gear so you can see the sort of stuff you'll need to borrow or buy.

Church Night takes place at:
Houston Burners Warehouse
908G Winston St
Houston, TX 77009

Thinking About Going to Burning Man This Year? Tell Us!

It's time to start thinking about Burning Man 2017! The main sale for tickets is later this month. In addition to our All About Burning Man Church Night, we're also asking folks to let us know you're thinking about going to Burning Man this year.

We're kicking around the idea for a Houston village where multiple theme camps would be neighbors and share transportation and some infrastructure. Whether we do this or not, at least two camps from Houston will be going to Burning Man.

If you'd like to get in on the planning, click the link above and fill out the form. The more people that sign up, the easier it will be for us to plan for things like transportation and coordinated ticket buys!

2017 Art Car Design Selection

Thanks to everyone that came out to our Art Car Design Selection reveal and drum circle! Congratulations to Tran Tran for the selection of her Tree of Life idea for this year's car. We're going to mount a beautiful, LED-lit tree in the back of the car, with branches that provide cucumber water to folks on playa. 

If you'd like to get involved with this year's build, please sign up for our Art Car team!

Finally, thanks to the leads for our 2016 Art Car project for their help in selecting the theme.
Winter Art Honorarium

Congratulations to Birmaid, the recipient of our $500 quarterly art honorarium and work space in our warehouse!

Birmaid is sponsored by Women Who Weld and is an art project to transform an electric motor rickshaw into a bird with a mermaid tail. Welding and other work will take place at our warehouse. Stay tuned for information on the next workday.

Our quarterly art grants are designed to keep art happening in our warehouse. The next call for applicants will happen later this spring.
