Nestled between two major metropolitan areas, and scattered across a vast geographic area, New Jersey provides a unique opportunity to provide an alternative sense of community than that offered in the cities it borders.
In 2008 the announce mailing list has reached 246 members. This is an additional 60 members since 2007. 2008 also saw an increase in events – a total of 10 combined official and non official events. 2007 had two or three official events. This region is clearly growing, and we are committed to serving the entire state of New Jersey, with events in every corner of the state: ranging from potlucks in people's living rooms to fire spinning and hooping events.
I've been going since 2004, and I think this box is too small to describe my Burning Man experience... through it I've met friends, lovers, had success and failures, and changed the way that I make art and create community. Burning Man is a great place to make my own adventure and create my life in a loving and empowered fashion. As Regional Coordinator for the Garden State I’m here to hold space for whatever it is you want to make happen here in Jersey! Reach out and we’ll make it happen.
2008 marked the first year I have served as solo regional for the state of New Jersey. (I started as regional in the Fall of 2007) This was a change from the prior seven years when the region was developed and well served by Taco Boy, who deserves major props for all his work bringing this region into being...
