Join Think-Act-Change for a screening of ‘Spark; A Burning Man Story’

Join us and the Think-Act-Change crew for Spark; A Burning Man Story at COFA next Tuesday 24th June 2014

Is it possible for festivals like Burning Man to influence societal and personal change?!

Join Think-Act-Change for a screening of ‘Spark; A Burning Man Story‘ followed by a lively panel discussion and audience Q&A where we can delve deep into festival culture, what drives individuals to attend such radical, large scale festivals and what can we as a society learn from them?

ABOUT THE FILM

Think Act ChangeSpark: A Burning Man Story is a documentary about the dreams and challenges of Burning Man and its unique culture of participatory art. Each year, 60,000 people from around the globe gather in a dusty windswept Nevada desert to build a temporary city, collaborating on large-scale art and partying for a week before burning a giant effigy in a ritual frenzy.

Rooted in principles of self-expression, self-reliance and community effort, Burning Man has grown famous for stirring ordinary people to shed their nine-to-five existence and act on their dreams. SPARK takes us behind the curtain with Burning Man organizers and participants, revealing a year of unprecedented challenges and growth. When ideals of a new world based on freedom and inclusion collide with realities of the “default world,” we wonder which dreams can survive.
