Looking for a new perspective on the Cosmos? Perhaps you are well versed in multiversing or curious about the Burnerverse? You’ve come to the right places!

The 2020 Black Rock City art theme explores the quantum kaleidoscope of possibility, the infinite realities of the multiverse, and our own superpositioning as actors and observers in the cosmic cacophony of resonant strings. It’s an invitation to ponder the real, the surreal and the pataphysical, and a chance to encounter our alternate selves who may have followed, or are following, or will follow different decision-paths to divergent realities in the “same” place.

Our Burnal Equinox theme, Cosmic Kaleidoscope, follows in a rather multiocular vein. We invite you to envision, create and enter the colorful eye of a communal kaleidoscope of being, observation and reinvention in space, time, and participatory experience!

Art • Music • Performance • Theme Camps • The Multiverse • The YOUniverse!

Homeless Care Pack Info
Make your participation extra meaningful! One of the Burning Man Principles is Gifting. Please consider helping those less fortunate by contributing several items from the list below. The best result will be achieved if people bring at least one item from Group A, or a bag of items from Group B. Backpacks and other supplies will be provided by Burning Man Project, and distributed to the homeless with love and care by members of our volunteer Community Events Team.

There is no special discount for participating in the backpack program for the homeless. However, if you’d like a discounted entry price you can purchase your tickets early or arrive between 6pm – 7pm for the special early program — which you really don’t want to miss, anyway! : )

THANK YOU SO MUCH for being part of the success of this effort to help the homeless. Our team will personally deliver the supplies in a manner that is thoughtful and ensures people can use the supplies.

Burnal Backpack Items Request List
Group A Items:

New Socks (packages of at least 3 pair) — men’s size 10-13 is most common, women’s size 9-11; put each pair in a Ziploc bag. Socks are usually thrown away once they get too dirty to wear as most homeless do not have access to laundry services.
New Underwear (packages of at least 3) — men’s boxers size M/L or Large; women’s basic brief size L(8-9), or XL(10); any color, cotton or cotton blend. Just like the socks, once they get too dirty to wear, they are usually thrown away.
Tarp (1) — 6 ft x 8 ft tarps any color works but green and brown colors are best.
Group B Items:
Toiletries: Your choice of five items from list below
Note: liquid items should be no larger than 8 oz each. When it gets too heavy, it’s a burden to move and can get tossed.

Wet wipes
Disposable twin-blade razors and shave cream
Feminine personal hygiene items: tampons, panty-liners, pads, etc.
Antibiotic ointment or cream — any size tube
Toothbrush — soft bristles, as many homeless have severe dental concerns
Toothpaste — tarter control is especially good
Soap — Liquid soap is best (a pure castille soap is preferred for multiple uses)
Shampoo/Conditioner – combo items are great!
Hand Sanitizer — no floral scents, please
Lotion — skin calming or extra moisturizing is especially helpful
