Portland Souk Planning & Discussion Meetup

“This is an opportunity for informal discussion and brainstorming about Portland’s submission for the “Souk” at Burning Man. For those who haven’t been paying attention, the Souk will be a bunch of tent stalls arranged in a circle around the Man. Groups from different areas will be doing different things in them.

Here is Larry Harvey’s vision for the event: http://souk.burningman.com/

8:00 pm. At one of the big tables inside. Find us. No mole-whales allowed.”

Souk FAQ Update

The great thing about the Souk is 24/7 interactivity showcasing a variety of Regional creativity (radical inclusion at its finest).
If you are interested in participating, you have two weeks to get your proposals ready!

• Before you read any further, it’s important that you and your team have read and grasp the overall intent of the Souk: http://souk.burningman.com.
• Larry’s speech from the GLC is a good way to tap into the collective consciousness around the Souk, like a 20 minute meditation, we highly encourage you to watch it!
• A quick read through of the Souk website will help galvanize your Pokies teams into the right direction, since this is a very different type of project in comparison to CORE.

What your proposal should include:

• An overview of how you intend to use the Souk space
• An estimate of your peak operating hours (primarily daytime, nighttime, or around-the-clock?)
• An interactivity plan
• A Leave No Trace (LNT) plan
• Desired amount of Souk space (12×12, 12×18, 12×24, 12×50)
• A rough sketch of how your space will be laid out

For more information, check in with your Regional Contact(s).

Deadline for proposals to BMHQ is Monday, June 9th at 10 PM Pacific Time
