Amber Burn is a regional Burning Man community gathering in Lithuania that is organized and run entirely by volunteers, following the ten principles of Burning Man. We all, including YOU, create a more expressive and exciting reality together.
As a part of the Burning Man family, we are a community where everyone is welcome. No prerequisites exist for participation. It’s an environment that encourages individuals to rely on their inner resources and creativity. Amber Burn only happens if you and I and all of us make a communal effort to gift and make it happen.
WE BURN IN
This summer, we will build a temporary Amber Burn City again; it will stand for five days, from July 5 to July 9. We need everybody’s contribution to fill the streets with life, workshops, costumes, performances, and art. It’s a co-creative gathering where we focus on community, self-expression, and self-reliance. Join and make it happen!
The soul of our temporary city is Theme Camps. They are its vital energy. Whatever your passion is—music, art, spirituality, food, learning, sports, recycling, dancing, or subcultures—connect with like-minded individuals and offer an interactive experience to your fellow citizens.
Let’s celebrate life!
2023 THEME: COSMIC FREEDOM
Do you know what the path is to being immensely free? Do you know what “cosmic” actually mean? Are we cosmic and excited to build our city once again?
Obviously, even more than excited, because the theme is COSMIC FREEDOM. A powerful and vastly expansive tool to play with. You know what they say – the sky’s the limit…
So, let’s gather this summer to celebrate our community, our creations, and the whole universe that is around and within each of us. The dream is alive.
THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF BURNING MAN
Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network in 2004. The principles are: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy.
They were crafted not to dictate how people should act but to reflect on the community’s ethos and culture as they had organically developed since the event’s inception. These principles are the guidelines for how we, as a community, are building the world for ourselves and how we live in our daily lives.
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
