Local Directory: Artist Groups, Spaces & Resources

If you know of a collective space where burners and like-minded folks collaborate and prep for playa projects, let us know & we’ll share the info here!

► *NEW* Why Knot’s Curiosities
a brand new burner owned resource center for local burners & festival goers!

319 Cambie Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 2N4604.669.2565

We are looking for consignors and designers to bring in their creations to sell in the shop.  Specifically we are looking for people who make costume/playa wear/tribal wear, alternative clothing or accessories and want a retail outlet to consign in.

The shop will also have a gently used consignment component, you know those preloved items that you just don’t rock anymore, or perhaps never rocked, maybe just not the colour for you this year.  Well you now have a place to bring those items to sell in the shop, earn a little extra money to maybe buy yourself something new.

Stay tuned for more info on the available workshop space, for community members to host all manner of workshops, group activities, meetings, etc.Please feel free to spread the word and have anyone interested contact us [email protected] discuss the details.

► Disaster Area

Disaster Area was formed out of the desire to bring large scale fire art to the public, and eventually to increase its profile to the point where Fire is as much of a draw at an event as the event entertainment itself. We are working to increase the profile and appreciation of fire as an form of entertainment within Greater Vancouver.
