Vancouver's Official Burning Man Decompression
Saturday November 17th
7pm – 4am
West Coast Railway Association, 39645 Government Road, Squamish, BC.
:::Let the Afterglow ignite our community in a celebration of art, music, fire:::
Many of us coming back from the desert want to reconnect and share our experience.
Afterglow is a celebration of the interactive arts, with an emphasis on participation. It takes us all to bring it alive. Afterglow is presented in association with Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society (GVIAS). We follow the 10 principles of Burning Man.
All details are posted on our website at: http://afterglowvancouver.org.
Please help us spread the word, RSVP to the Facebook Event page and invite your friends: https://www.facebook.com/events/435855459808938
It has been our vision to create a sustainable fall event for those of us returning from the desert. Over the years venues have come and gone and with the increasing difficulty in finding a suitable venue in Vancouver we have thrown our net a little wider. So just an hour away in Squamish we believe we have found an amazing venue with possibilities for it to be used over the coming years.
Check out the venue wcra.org/roundhouse !! Watch the virtual tour.
With 15,000 sq ft of open venue space amidst heritage trains there are many possibilities for you to participate. Do you have a theme camp that wants space, or an art installation, or perhaps you want to be in the fire show. We can accommodate aerial acrobatics and stilters. Perhaps you are a visuals artist.
We welcome anyone to participate – let us know how we can support you! Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society is providing art grants, and transport for existing art and grants for new art. All proceeds from this event will be given back to the community to support interactive arts. We will be making a donation to either Black Rock Arts, BWB or the Regional Network.
