MidBurn needs you!
“Man & Eve” Effigy needs you!
About a year ago, a small community of Burners in Israel proceeded with building a great CORE project. Little did they know about how much work and devotion it would take to build “The Hand on Inspiration”. With great effort, they pulled it off, and it was beautiful. Just as the name suggests, it was indeed inspiring.
The inspiration carried on and one year later, here we are again, approaching our First MidBurn Regional event. This time we are bigger, smarter and more experienced, and have as much passion running through our veins, but we are also facing a bigger mission.
As a community, we find ourselves in very exciting times. Our First Regional event is in a month from now, and everyone wants to be there to witness what will become a historical event for Midburn.
But being a Burner is more than just being there. Being a Burner means being committed to a radically participatory ethic that will allow for transformative change within our society and within each and every one of us.
The team working on “Man & Eve” effigy has been working tirelessly to build what will become the centerpiece of the event and allow
everyone to enjoy it.
In the effigy team we know we can only achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart. Our Regional and “The Sacred Bond” can happen only thought the medium of deeply personal participation. The desert is our empty canvas and is awaiting us to bring it to life through our special ways.
“Man & Eve ” effigy needs you. There is a need for volunteers to
join the Fire Perimeter crew and the LNT team. As part of the Fire Perimeter crew, you, along with a few other people, will be responsible for safeguarding the burning of the effigy during its very special night. You will become a fire guardian of “Man & Eve”.
As Burners we are committed to respecting the environment and leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. In charge of this duty is the LNT (Leave No Trace) crew. The LNT Crew will make sure that we will clean up after the effigy burns and that we will strive to leave the Negev desert in a better state than when we found it.
Volunteering for “Man & Eve” effigy is a great way of connecting with other members of your community, forming
great friendships and making our first Regional Event as great as possible.
