Saturday, March 27th



The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will soon be voting on a law that would make it illegal to sit or lie on the sidewalk anywhere in the city. We think it's a really bad idea to criminalize the act of sitting in public space and we're shocked that San Francisco may be on the verge of adopting the most draconian "sit/lie" law in the country.

We are responding by celebrating public space, San Francisco's diverse and vibrant culture, and San Francisco's history of tolerance.

On Saturday, March 27 people all over San Francisco will be doing what they love on the city's sidewalks and they will be inviting family, friends, and neighbors to join them. Multiple events have already been planned and the list is growing by the hour.

What can you do for "Sidewalks are for People?" Anything! Music, barbecue, yoga, lemonade stand, read, relax, art, talk, sun bathe, chess, meditate, tai chi, eat, knit, dance, paint, write, sit, lie down, play, chalk drawings, sing, DJ, drums, chill -- Anything!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. Invite your friends to this event!

Coming Soon! A website where you can see planned events or where you can post your own event.

Contact Andy for more info andyblue415 at gmail dot com

Burning Man Special Events Team WORKSHOPS!

The Burning Man Special Events Team is supporting a number of free, interactive workshops -- by Burners for Burners -- designed to share the skills and expertise of our community.  These workshops are intended to further the principles of gifting and radical self-reliance using tools that are readily available.  We've got TWO workshops coming up....


Burner Virgin Q & A with Dessert Potluck
Wed 3/31
7pm - 8:30 presentation plus Q & A
8:30 pm Dessert Potluck mixer
At Burning Man HQ on the 3rd floor in the Zocalo (open meeting space)
3450 Third St #2A between Cargo Way and Evans Ave, SF 

Will 2010 be your first year on the playa? Are you thinking about going but are maybe on the fence (yet again!)? This is a rare opportunity to learn some tips and tricks you might not find online and a chance to ask some crustydusty veterans your burning questions in a group setting. Topics include Travel & Transportation, BRC Layout and Infrastructure, The People,  Shelter and The Elements, Water, Clothing, What to carry with you, Survival Tips, LNT, Gift Economy, Overall Vibe... The format will be a brief question-provoking topical presentation by a seasoned burner, mixed with an open forum Q&A with a panel of experienced Burners. Feel free to bring some written questions to hand to the panel at the beginning of the evening.
BRING: your burning questions and cookies or dessert of some kind to share. Participants in workshop 2 will join us after their workshop to expand the social mixer part of the night.

RSVP: space is limited to 40 persons, please RSVP to Terry .

Learn how to draw quick and accurate site plans for your theme camp! We are teaching the basics of the free, easy-to-use program: SketchUp. Here you will learn the basics on how to draw your site in scale and dimension it.  Burning Man requires an accurate, readable site plan to register your theme camp. This class teaches you how to show it the way that best expresses your layout, the way BM wants you to show it.

Come learn how to draw a layout quickly & easily and show how much space you REALLY need!!!

We STRONGLY URGE you to bring your laptop (if you have one) to work along. Otherwise you may be able to share with someone else at the workshop. Before you come to the workshop, download the most recent version of SketchUp here FOR FREE:

Thanks and see you at the drafting table!

Curated by Christine Kristen aka LadyBee
Opening 8- 12    DJ Feral on the decks

“Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity.”  - T.S. Eliot
The economic crisis, global warming, overpopulation, corporate globalization, terrorism and the wars have generated
 a free-floating anxiety, which is difficult not to internalize. The future seems uncertain at best. Will humans prevail, or
have we passed the point of no return? Ten artists explore issues of anxiety from global to extremely personal.

Featuring: Jenny Bird Alcantara, Bryan Tedrick, Brian Goggin, Deirdre de Franceaux, Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg, Jonathan Solo, Lee Harvey Roswell, Frances Baker and Tony Speirs
