The Namibian Burn invites artists and participants to bring their unique skills, talents and creations, as a celebration of the human creative spirit as embodied in the ethos and spirit of our Burn Principles.
2 Burns, One Month - That's right!! - 2 Weeks after NamBurn, we are taking a Namibian Theme Camp to Afrikaburn: 'Flaming Dust'' - That Crazy Steampunk Saloon

It is a Burners Burn, placing our Burn Principles, Participation, the Community and concept of Ubuntu first. "I am you, you are me, and together we are the Community".
Basic GUIDELINES / Recommendations-ish
It is recommended for art pieces to be built on a standard size pallet or on a comparable size base.
Pallet Size: roughly 1.2 m x 1.2 m or smaller. It should preferably be no larger than a standard size pallet.
The pieces will have to be lifted using 2 strong poles slid through the pallet then lifted onto the burn-pit. Similar to a forklift, but using poles instead.
Art Height: Recommended up to 8 feet (2 m) tall. It can be smaller though.
Materials: These small art pieces are to be made out of wood or safe burnable materials that do not create sparks. Pine/Pallet wood works perfect.
Weight: since the piece & pallet will be picked up using poles, we ask that you be mindful about how heavy your piece is.
All projects must be on site by the morning of the Burn start. The community would love to have the time to see and appreciate your art.
There is no limit to how many projects we can burn, so BRING ON your burning creations!!
Space, place and our support is there for you: Speak to us.
