You're beyond welcome to join your friends in Chicago's Burning Man Community for Decompression 2010 (Little Playa on the Prairie). This B.U.R.N. NFP-sponsored community event brings the open-hearted energy and creative spirit of the Burning Man Project to our great city for
thirteen magical hours.
On Saturday, November 6th you and hundreds of your closest friends will create your version of Black Rock City on the 5th floor of the East Bank Storage facility, a Bridgeport storage, studio, and event space that's booked and confirmed to give us 15,000+ square feet in which to play! This community-arts event will be - as always - for you, and by you, complete with music, art installations, food, fire, friends, family and FUN!
This year's theme is Little Playa on the Prairie. Think bonnets, top hats, pioneers and covered wagons. This is the Land of Lincoln y'all, the Prairie State, so we're going back in time to the days of our homeboy Abe Lincoln, a time when Chicago was just an up-and-coming little burgh bridging the East Coast with the Western states. Need some inspiration? Check out this heartwarming finale from the last episode of "Little House on the Prairie."

Everyone will be asked for a donation - even organizers, artists and volunteers who spend dozens of hours on the event! You can pre-pay your contribution of $15 here: http://boldurban.org/donate/ If you choose not to pre-pay, volunteers will be asking $20 of those who come in pioneer or playa-gear, and $25 of those who come in street clothes. This event will be conducted in accordance with the "Ten Principles" of the Burning Man Regional Network
financial reports will be available to this community after
Decompression is over.
