Well, here it is - HELSINKI DECOMPRESSION. A collaborative playground for all kids and adults. A place to express yourselves. A space to gather. A moment to get lost in.
Based on the values of communal effort and self-expression, this is the first official Burning Man regional event in Finland.
We also want to break the barriers between artists and visitors. You don't come here to be entertained, but to entertain. In the spirit of equality, the same goes for the tickets and we require everyone to buy a ticket with the price of 25 euros.
As part of Burning Man principles, the profits will not be paid as salary for the production team, but rather allocated as grants for projects to give financial support.
Art grants are a financial support that each creation can apply for. This might cover some of the expenses, but be prepared to handle your own budget. Not all creations will be granted financial support.
In order to make our collaboration gapless, we will invite you to join our Slack (helsinkidecompression.slack.com). There you can find answers to all of your questions and ask for help in organising your project!
Registration closes 18.11.2016 at 18:00. You can still register a program after the deadline but your program is not eligible for art grants.
