Burning Man at the Conference on World Affairs

April 10th, 2012  |  Filed under News

Fresh off her well-received (and lightning-speed) talk about Burning Man at The Economist’s Ideas Economy forum, we’re excited that Andie Grace is now representing Burning Man at the Conference on World Affairs, taking place this week at The University of Colorado, Boulder.

Andie will be speaking on several interesting panels, but the most pertinent to Burners is the “Burning Man Women” panel with Burner/scientist Kiki Sanford this Friday at noon. The event is free and open to public … if you’re in the vicinity, head over there!

Here’s more information about the conference (which Roger Ebert called “the conference on Everything Conceivable.”), and a video that’ll give you an idea of what it’s about:

    I hope the ““Burning Man Women” panel goes into depth about the complexity of the Sparkle Pony Phenomenon. It’s great to see these women so empowered out on the playa after they’ve managed to contribute by pulling out a single piece of rebar, complete with photographs and cheers from their fellow campers.

    There’s nothing quite as rewarding as watching a female burner feel she’s done something significant by simply showing up to look pretty.

    40 years of feminism wasn’t a waste after all.

    Trixmix, your exposure to Burning Man Women sounds like it has been a bit limited. I know hundreds of them, and they are so very not that. Anyway, it was a great panel, good questions and some enthusiastic new burners.
