EPISODE 16: Burning Man as Activism for the Middle East: Conversations with Sharon Avraham

The Ten Principles of Burning Man create a healing field for individuals to be who they are without concern for what they do in the world. For one week in the desert, life is whimsical and designed for authentic, imaginative expression. 

 

Sharon Avraham co-founded the Israeli Burning Man, and led many of its events for years. In one week, he with a tribe of Middle Eastern activists return to Black Rock City with a unique mission: The Kosmic Kamels. 

 

Located at 8:45 and A, this camp offers a place for people to safely gather, play and dream together, but not just any people, a group torn apart by conflict zones, governments and religious wars. The Kosmic Kamels are eager to dissolve these painful, violent boundaries. 

 

Flying into the dust from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, the UAE, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Europe and the USA, these individuals are committed to a world based on a shared humanity that not only allows difference, but celebrates it. Dressed up with glitter and lights, Sharon hopes that the dusty dreams that they dream together fuel each member of the camp to return home inspired and supercharged to pave pathways of change in a world that desperately needs them.
