In the spirit and tradition of building something out of nothing, the Taiwan Burner community has a Discord Server where conversations and discussions take place between our face to face meetings. To join in the conversation please click HERE.
Turtle Burn is an extension of Burning Man itself. Our goal is to bring the Burning Man culture and community to Taiwanese locals and the residing foreigners. Taiwan was able to successfully hold it’s first official regional burn in 2019 and another following the covid pandemic in 2021. We look forward to a third successful burner event this year in 2022!
Whether its a heartfelt conversation, someone giving a hug, or sharing food – gifting will be everywhere at Turtle Burn. Some of the best experiences will be between you and others at the most unexpected time. You can prepare a small trinket of your appreciation ahead of the event and keep them on you for when you have shared a moment with others, OR to just give out randomly because you want to. Gifting is an exercise in generosity and sharing for the sake of sharing without expecting anything in return.
Turtle Burn is based upon the 10 Principles of Burning Man written by Larry Harvey in 2004. It is these principles that makes it a Burn, which is unlike a normal festival. The Ten Principles of Burning Man are:
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
