If you are involved in something useful, beautiful, or otherwise productive, then what is the point of worrying that most people might actually appreciate your art or skill? NONE.

they're not sheep. the only sheep in the herd are those who go around pointing out the sheep in the herd, because everyone is doing it.

you might want to consider that even groups as low down the social ladder as 'cafe village' view regular participants as mere 'citizens' ... i know because i've camped with them. cafe village is the lowest of the low on the ladder - they usually can't even get enough wood to build their bar without doing something unnatural with DPW folk. it's worse than lord of the flies in places like this; A LOT worse! these people think they're better than ticket holders - that they are members of the true civic. they consider themselves beyond just regular participants. it's a pervasive attitude out there. are you in or are you out?
so what concerns me is that you view BM as a 'unique venue to express our lifestyle like no other'. relative to what? relative to whom?
