NOLABRC is nonprofit, participant-led arts and culture association promoting tangible social, cultural and environmental action in greater New Orleans and the region. NOLABRC fosters the regional and New Orleans Burning Man community by providing the organizational and financial structure to plan and carry out local events and projects, and helps local burners organize to attend Burning Man and other regional events. Guided by Burning Man’s 10 principles, NOLABRC promotes New Orleans’ cultural legacy, vital creativity and dynamic future.
Our mission is to uphold and manifest the values described in the Ten Principles of Burning Man, specifically: Radical Inclusion, Gifting, Decommodification, Radical Self-reliance, Radical Self-expression, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leaving No Trace, Participation, and Immediacy. You do not have to be a Burner or have attended Burning Man to be a part of our community. A love of the arts and a respect for others and your community is all you need to contribute and participate.
