It is way too easy to fall into habits. Let yourself play with what’s between our pages!
THE SURREAL & SANE
Because sometimes you want to read something thought provoking and sometimes you want to laugh.
Our gears are turning, yours should be too. Consider participating in making it happen.
i, GLOWBOT is the inaugural theme for the Burning Almanac. Because clearly if you brought robots to Burning Man they would be glowing.
Interpret this as you wish. Our contributors certainly will be doing that themselves…
This is meant to be an art form that doesn’t really fully exist yet. It is growing out of the almanac, Zine, and arts journal concepts, but fundamentally this is our format to play with. So what word, visual, or numerical geekery do you wish to share?SUBMIT
What’s an almanac anyway?
The Farmer’s Almanac helps farmers get their best growing year on while simultaneously entertaining and inspiring them during the long winter hibernation.
That said, a Burning Almanac would have to provide inspiration for burners to have their best Burning Man year ever while engaging in creative expression. However, we don’t guarantee that we are just providing entertainment for the community, including those who will be on the playa and those who can’t make it but wish to immerse themselves in this co-created culture.
First and foremost we are doing this for FUN:
In all seriousness, the plan is to get sufficient funds to make a large gift of almanacs to the community. That, and covering the costs of printing, shipping, etc. is most important
We are doing this because we want to:
– engage with the community,
– be playful in our artistic side,
– have fun with our friends, our tribe, and the world around us.
It’s about creating amusement.
A completely re-envisioned calendar; almanac type stuff; etc.
Short fiction, micro stories, poems, etc.
Science geekery; personal narrative, DIY instructions, geometry, math
Visual Arts, Photography, Sketches, Painting, Comics
Draw & Design, DIY
Fake ads, only rule is they can’t be real.
Astrology, Numerology, Tarot, and Energy Healing
The stuff that gets included because we want it to be.
Makin’ it Happen
