Sunburn 2022

Hello dearest SunBurners near and far,

We hope you are all doing well at the onset of this new year. There are not enough words for how much we’ve missed getting together, collaborating, just seeing your faces in the last few years. Hard to believe it’s been that long to begin with. We’ve had our first several board meetings of 2022, and the first topic of discussion was the feasibility of having our regional burn this year. We are ecstatic to announce that SunBurn 2022 is a go! We’ll be gathering at the same amazing location as we did in 2018 & 2019, and we’re so excited to see your shining smiling faces there. The event will take place during the weekend leading up to 4th of July.

The theme of this year’s SunBurn is……

Perihelion Inversion

On the 4th of July in 2022, Earth will be in Aphelion, at its furthest distance from the Sun. Over the past couple of years, we have all experienced extreme distance, emotional or physical. We experienced the slow drift as a species to the far end of orbit away from the elements of our lives that provide meaning and depth. We have missed our global Burner community, and especially our New Mexico fire and warmth; SunBurn. Our theme this year, is a declaration of our intent to inspire change through inverting the normal, to draw closer to the Sun and to recapture our relationship to those parts of life we all have missed so dearly. We say no to the Aphelion.

Panel 1

What is SunBurn?

SunBurn is New Mexico’s officially-sanctioned regional Burning Man event. SunBurn is a cultural movement based on the 10 principles of Burning Man and a quest to experiment our ideas within community.  This event is a temporary village created by its participants in the experiment of radical expression and doocracy.

Meaning, this is your chance to express yourself!

SunBurners build themed camps with friends and invite other burners to participate in them during the event.  SunBurners provide music and art because they love to share it. Now you can be the act and the entertainment you want to see, because what happens here is up to everyone! Leave your money at home because we are a gift economy. Gift what you have to share, and you will always find what you need.

We collaborate.

We are inclusive, creative, connective, and activated.

Lastly, SunBurn is a Leave No Trace event, so clean up after yourself so someone else doesn’t have too.

Sunburn continues to be a hard-won expression of creative and loving New Mexicans and our friends from afar. We welcome all players, new and old, to enjoy together what we call “the burn.”
