I am the Acculturation lead for Reverbia, a 300+ person sound camp that plays 130 hours of live music all week right on the Esplanade (or the main road). I wrote the following blog to provide more information and resources about each principle and their corresponding behaviors so we can continue to contribute to Burning Man’s culture.

Burning Man describes culture as “our collective lived experience. It’s not something you are, but rather something you do.” Values (or principles) help guide us in our decisions and ultimately our actions which create our culture. Marian Goodell explains in her TedTalk that “Burning Man helps people live more creative and collective lives. It changes people, it causes a cultural shift in the way we communicate and relate with each other.” Transformation is possible within Burning Man’s culture due to the community’s commitment to living out the 10 Principles.
