Burning Man festival: Be creative, and destructive!Burning Man festival: Be creative, and destructive!Nevada’s Black Rock Desert is the favourite place of thousands of people to gather every year. They are there to create Black Rock City as part of the Burning Man festival – a dedication to community, self-reliance and self-expression. It is an extraordinary event to participate, and let your imagination fly wide in the desert. And, make sure that you go there as a participant; no one is allowed to be a spectator at the event. The festival is for those creative souls who fancy painting themselves in blue or red, or turning their car into a dinosaur. This year’s art theme for the festival is Metropolis- the Life of Cities. Participants will be eagerly inspecting city life and its future by creating various art forms that they will destroy at the end of the festival.  The climax, of course, is setting fire to a gigantic, wooden effigy of a man! Have the burning desire to invent something, and destruct it later? The Burning Man festival is the perfect place for you!
