Announcement from out Regional Coordinator: Robin Murphy

I got this email from the regional network and wanted to share it in case someone local wanted to contribute:

David Brown, Guest Curator of Special Projects for the No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man Exhibition at the Cincinnati Art Museum is looking for participation from our awesome Burner community! He is asking Burners to send in photos from Black Rock City to be used in the exhibit. All the info is below.

He has not received many submissions to date and really wants this part of the exhibit to stand out. He loves the idea of the photos being gifted at the conclusion of the exhibit or taken out to the Temple and burned, and is open to specific intentions and suggestion from the Burnerverse. He is requesting photo submissions by May 15, 2019.

He is also looking for Burners who wish to get involved with the opening and ongoing support of the exhibit. If you are interested, you can reach out to him directly at

Gateway Burners Ranger Training

2115 Scott Ave, St Louis, MO 63103, United States

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 1 PM – 6:30 PM

Training is being held at Arch Reactor. There is parking along the side and behind the building, please enter through the front door on Scott.

Doors at 1pm, Program 1:30-6:30pm

There should be plenty of seating for 30+. There will be food provided by Chuck Russell from the Spice Pirates. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

This is a training to help prepare for volunteering as a Ranger. Rangers wander the burn, providing support for participants, maybe by helping someone disoriented to find their friends or summoning the medics for someone who has been injured.

It can be a little intimidating, and we want to try to overcome some of those barriers to volunteering, like being unsure about what it’s like being a Ranger, not knowing how to respond to situations, or not knowing about all of the support available to help you. Being a Ranger can be one of the most fun and fulfilling volunteering opportunities at a burn, and we want to help set you up for success.

We’ll address topics like:

What rangers are
How Rangers approach situations
What other departments do Rangers work with
What support you will have
How to effectively use the radios

After learning the What and How of Rangering, we will explore some situations so that you know what to expect. There will be experienced Rangers present, and we’ll talk through some scenarios to see how best to respond and how to apply some of the skills we’ve been learning.

Everyone is welcome, even (particularly?) those who think being a Ranger isn’t for them. It’s a great opportunity to learn what Rangers do. Come join us to find out more!

Thank you very much!
