Presentations and discussions on participatory and immersive artwork, events, and communities created in the Great Lakes and inspired by the spirit of Burning Man.

The Great Lakes Burner Symposium will include a series of invited speakers from our community who have created large scale art, effigies, theme camps, projects or events for a series of tantalizing 10-15 minutes talks.
