25 April to 1 May
WHAT is it?
AfrikaBurn a community of artists who meet once a year to create magnificent artistic installations in the desert.
WHERE is it?
This spectacular event takes place in the desert close the natiol park of Karoo Tankwa, located to 300 km to the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.
WHY this event?
A volunteer artists communities they meeting in this remote area of the desert to create art work like structures plunged in the fire, games, costumes, mutant machines, music etc. ..
It was born in 2007 like a non – profit organisation. It’s a demonstration of radical form accessible to everyone, similar to the American event “Burning Man”. The chosen theme is “The Gift”, nothing is for sale, no advertising or sponsorship, they sustain simply “the gift economy”, so giving without expecting anything in return. It’s a hymn to art, to the infinite forms that it can take in their imagination and creativity.
This is true key of AfrikaBurn, solidarity spirit that animates the present, an opportunity to meet, to grow together and improve.
