Team Atlanta primarily serves the burning denizens of our lovely city, but our generous southern hospitality finds us also reaching out to help the greater Southeastern Burner community. Being so far away from Burning Man, the Atlanta community has a lot of folks who are burners to the core, but they skip that thing in the desert in favor of more intimate regional events. In 2007, the Alchemy Festival was created primarily by Atlantans so we could have a burn even closer to home!
Clove Tolbert aka Buttercup: My first burn experience was in the summer of '05. In '07, I became addicted to playa dust. In between and beyond, mix in meeting more glorious people and traveling to other regionals....and you have one crazed art and burn fanatic.
Jonathan LaLiberty aka Amsterdam: My first burn was Transformus 2004 and I've been hooked since. I've travelled out to Burning Man twice (2006,2008) and many other regional events. I am an artist and pryo at heart and this is a community I love and cherish. I am here to answer any and all of your questions and to support the local community.
Clove’s favorite quote: “At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.” -- Frederick NietzscheJonathan’s favorite quote: “Burn baby BURN!”

We value participation, inclusion, radical self expression and most of all, self reliance.
Colaboratory is a place to explore intentional community, mixed with multi-use warehouse space. If there is something you want to do, bring it to Colaboratory and we will all make it happen together.
