Burning Flipside is a participatory art celebration inspired by Burning Man. Since the first event in 1998, when a few dozen friends got together for a campout near Austin, it has grown to become a temporary city of about 2-3,000 people.

With an extensive all-volunteer organization that makes it run, there are numerous ways for anyone who wants to be a part of it to get involved.

At the same time, it has become the nucleus of a year-round community that meets regularly to socialize, work together on projects, and discuss the event’s direction.
