Preparing for BRC @ )'( Be Nice Party )'(

Less than two months until the playa!  And since it is that time of year, we have again turned the Be Nice Party into the place for people to connect before we head out to the desert.  This is the place for Black Rock City residents to meet off the playa and discuss plans, camp recruiting, preparation and other things.  Have fund raisers or workshops coming up?  Come down and promote them! 

The Be Nice Party. An early evening in a quiet club atmosphere where you can drop in after work, order dinner, sip a drink and have a chat with new friends. A Burner-rich event, this is about bringing Burning Man home: come meet your Bay Area neighbors in a setting where there are no expectations, just smile if you want and enjoy the vibe. This is our part of bringing Black Rock City Sensibilities Home.

Living Pulse

Hello friends! 
Our inspiring sound and sculpture installation, Living Pulse, is in action on every level and now is the time to jump in and participate.  Check out all of our new photos on our website – to see what we've been up to!  We need all the help that we can get in tons of areas – in the next couple of weeks especially.  We are almost approved to show in Garfield Park (25th and Mission - where the Day of the Dead altars are) on August 4th with the MAPP.  We want it to be spectacular so that we continue to show in public spaces where Living Pulse can really come to life and contribute to as many people as possible. 
LIVING PULSE - Here's how YOU (and any of your friends) can help:

    * 3:00 - 6:00 pm loading recycled wood into trucks (at a super cool warehouse out near the Bayview in SF – 350 Paul Ave- can carpool). 
    * We need one or two more trucks for this, if you have one to lend!
    * 7:00 - 8:00 pm unloading wood in Berkeley at 1336 Channing Way

Call me regarding any help on this day: 415.312.2214 cell

We will be making trees!!  (See above for what to bring) and it is Iris' birthday!  Lend a hand and some love to bring Living Pulse into life!  Also we will be doing some electrical stuff so anyone who wants to participate in the electrical please also come on this day.

Sunday, July 29th - Noon to  6-ish (at a park in Berkeley) we'll be laying out and doing the wiring for the overhead mandala light-web. 
More hands make light work and happy people, and these are all really fun parts to get involved in. 2-10 people.
INSTRUMENTS - Tyson needs a team of dedicated instrument makers to help create our magical musical forest.  He welcomes your enthusiastic participation.  Also, we would love to have instruments in the branches that are activated by nature alone.  Tyson has some designs for you to make, or you can suggest your own inventions.  Contact Tyson -
BANNERS - Who wants to team up with me in going up to Twin Peaks and wind-proofing the banners?  We need to find the best way to let the wind through as much as possible, that we can do by hand, and that will cause the least damage to the artwork.  (Any ideas - contact me please!!)  I'd love 2-3 people. 
TREE CHAKRA SIGNS - Each tree will need a beautiful sign designed and painted, describing the chakra and inviting people to write their thoughts and prayers.  2-6 people.
OUTER HEART - The outside of the heart will be covered with screening and a melange of soft fabrics, with accents of El Wire.  If you love working with fabric and sewing, or are inspired to create the heart with us, let us know.  2-4 people. 
PRAYER LEAVES - We need a team to help pick up the fabric, and cut/tear it into strips. 2-6 people.
FUNDRAISING - We need funds to pay for these essential elements for the project, and also to store it and pay for transport to show it throughout the year.  Please distribute widely by email, and if you have time - print, make photocopies, add a quick note, and send to your friends and loved ones.  (If it is not attached I will be happy to send you a copy.  Just email me at
Hope to see you this week end, and looking forward to hearing from you! 
Lots of love, Iris*
