The vision of the Midburn association is to create and encourage the creation of participation-based sensational spaces that are both inspiring as well as encouraging for social, environmental and cultural evolution. The yearly event allows the association to make the art accessible to the public and to encourage civic engagement.

The Midburn event, as all Burning Man events, is based on the ten principles.

We encourage the community to take part in the activities of the association by participating in projects during the year as well as in the Midburn event. Every individual participates based on his capabilities.

Friends of Midburn allows individuals to offer additional support to these projects. The Midburn friends are partners, burners and members from different domains, that feel close to the Midburn vision, are interested in the unique Midburn culture and recognize its contribution to society. A Friend of Midburn can participate by donating money that helps to expand the operations of the Midburn association.

The membership in Friends of Midburn has a yearly cost and can be renewed during the sale for the Lemuria gala.

 

Lemuria

According to the legend, Lemuria is a mystical continent that sunk into the sea between India and Madagascar. It is a magical, green and flourishing place, a place where we lived as free people, in harmony with nature and connected to our inner selves, a place where we communicated without words or barriers.

Our journey into the Lemuria continent is a journey into a momentary utopia we yearn for, a dream come true. It’s an alternative new world that we create for ourselves, so that each and every one of us can feel like in heaven on earth, even for just one moment.

Lemuria is the yearly gala of the Midburn association dedicated entirely to the art fund. One night that celebrates art through a prosperity of sights and sounds inspired by the burner art. A night that takes us to a pleasuring journey in fanciful clothing with vigorous artists, rejoicing music, a seductive auction and an art gallery, all of which will allow us to arrive at Lemuria.

Lemuria allows us to guarantee a year of innovative, genius and extraordinary artworks, coming from within us.

This evening will set the tone for the artistic mass created on the Playa this year. It will determine the horizon of our temporary desert city - the giant art installations that can be seen from afar and the smaller art that is revealed by wandering through the Playa. The Midburn art fund was founded within the community and its goal is offering support to all art exhibits that are intended to arise on the Playa each year.

For the fund to support as many project as possible we hold the Lemuria gala, which allows a concrete ground for the activities of the fund.

The peak of the night is the Lemuria gala, introducing the continent to the public.
