Black Rock City is BIG, and the Esplanade is merely its 13th longest street! Get to know your city — walk the streets, talk to the people, heckle back the hecklers. When someone invites you into their camp for a smoothie, say yes. Or don’t! You’re completely surrounded by ways to participate, and it never, ever stops. Check out the weird stuff, the small stuff, the out-of-the-way stuff. You’ll never see it all… and that’s the best part. | Photo by William Clearlake, design by @tannerboeger #participation #immediacy #brc #blackrockcity #burningman

Along each block of Black Rock City, there lie untold possibilities of weird, wonderful, and unique experiences. People from all over the world come to share their gifts, big and small. You already know where to find the big, so take a walk (or bike ride) with your friends off the beaten path. There’s no telling what you’ll find and what magical stories you’ll return with! | Photo by Kate Shay, design by @tannerboeger #participation #immediacy #brc #blackrockcity #burningman

The fence is up! It's nine miles' worth of pounding, string and some pushups at the end of the day for good measure. | Photos by @johncurley | #buildingbrc #blackrockcity #burningman #brc #communaleffort #participation

Survey Crew is hard at work laying out the plan for BRC from the center at the Man base through the city streets measuring out points from over a mile from the octagon. Peep in on #buildingBRC and #BRCSurvey to watch our home come alive. It’s out here somewhere. With the right eyes and equipment, you can find it in the dust. | Photos by @shalaco | #burningman #blackrockcity #brc #buildingBRC #BRCSurvey #communaleffort #participation #leavenotrace #thankslarry

And away we go! "This is how it all begins, in a barren, hot, forbidding desert, with no trucks, no trailers, no art, no signs of life, save for the people who came barreling out of Gerlach, headlong into the unknown, to keep tradition alive." @johncurley's on the ground in BRC to chronicle our city coming alive. Read more about it—and see many more pictures!—in the Burning Man Journal (link in bio). Let's do this. 🔥 | Photos by @johncurley | #burningman #brc #blackrockcity #buildingbrc #thankslarry #communaleffort #participation #leavenotrace
