What is Kiwiburn?
- Kiwiburn is a collective experience. Everybody contributes, everybody buys a ticket, even people who have volunteered year-round to make the event happen. As there are no paid performers at the event, there are no spectators and what is shared are the passions and dreams of those who gift them. You cannot “attend” Kiwiburn, but you can be a part of it. There is no money exchanged for anything at the event – the participants are co-creating a gift economy and a different kind of social reality to go along with it, where you can feel free to radically express yourself and please respect other people’s boundaries.
Due to this collective nature there is no programme or featured artist list. There will be various kinds of music, art installations, people in costume, neon lights, fire spinners, drummers, random surprises, dancers, free spirits and healers… but that’s just us, and what we are doing… bring your passion and share with us your dreams.
