Burnout 2011, Portland Decompression: Black Top City
Burnout 2010, Portland Decompression: Black Top City
"Burnout" is an interactive arts festival. This event will consider community and the transformation of interior city spaces. We offer artists and performers a chance to express themselves in an open forum. This is not a craft fair, or commercial venture. We have no marketplace. We are driven by community and entirely volunteer run.
We've got space at Refuge and the ODOT lots ("Black Top City"). This means tons of open space for large theme camps, mutant vehicles, fire arts, along with covered space for bands, music, & more over the weekend at Refuge.
We are hoping earlier in the season will increase our chances of awesome weather, either way Refuge offers a great indoor (covered) space, only two blocks from the North ODOT lot.
So calling everyone, theme camps, art cars, artists & performers, come strut your stuff! While this is not "car" camping in the woods... we want you to bring your shade/rain/dome/chillspaces. This is your temporary city, your camp, a place to transform your community & your world.
Our event follows these guiding principles:
Inclusion, Gifting, Decommodification, Self-reliance, Self-expression, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leaving No Trace, Participation, and Immediacy.
