You're so very welcome to join your friends in Chicago's Burning Man Community for Decompression 2011: The Voyage Home. Every year, this B.U.R.N. NFP-sponsored community event brings the loving, creative spirit, and the full-throttled energy of the Burning Man Project to beautiful Chicago, Illinois for thirteen hours.
On Saturday, October 15th, you and hundreds of your closest friends will return to the Bridgeport Arts Center to create your version of
Black Rock City, right here in your own amazing town.
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 event will be conducted in accordance with the Ten Principles of the Burning Man Regional Network
http://regionals.burningman.com/network_principles.html . Full financial reports will be available to this community after
Decompression is over.
Donations for reserved admission will be available online shortly after Burning Man.
THEME: THE VOYAGE HOME
Some “Rites of Passage” call you away from your nest for a pilgrimage or exploration, a battle, or mission. The Rite then ends with “The Voyage Home,” a familiar story to burners in and around our great town.
Each August, hundreds of Chicagoans voyage 2000 miles to Black Rock City, where they are greeted with the words “Welcome Home.” Yet in September they voyage 2000 more miles back to their permanent homes in Chicago and the family, friends, or lovers unable to travel those 4000 miles.
And that's why there's a Decompression . . . for everyone to relive Home, right here in our amazing town.
