Conception this year will take place on the weekend of Saturday, July 2nd and Sunday July 3rd, with the theme All The Fun of the Fair.
Announcing the event, the BURN2 Press Release reads in part:
A long time ago, a world was conceived to let people stay in touch and interact with each other all year round, rather than just at one wonderful place once year. The conception of this place went far beyond the original idea and its framework.
…What better way to celebrate our conception, than to show what we can create for the community at large with all the fun of the fair? Food stands, games, rides, float parades, fireworks, let’s fill the Playa with fun and frivolity!
Those wishing to participate as builders in the event are encouraged to think along the lines of the event theme and consider building one of the following: a large ride or interactive attraction; a sideshow game of skill or chance; a small food stand; a ticket box; a parade float. The organisers note that other ideas fitting the theme might be accepted, but will need to be discussed with them beforehand.
Be warned, however! Plots are limited and will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis, so it’s better to get your application submitted sooner rather than later! When doing so, do make sure you read the guidelines at the top of the application form; then select your choice of build type and write a description of what you have in mind. The build period is open NOW through until July 1st, so don’t be surprised if you hear back very quickly!
Those who would like to be a greeter at the event can sign-up here, and the organisers note that there may be some performer / performance slots available, so those interested are asked to keep an eye on the BURN2 website for any details.
The PR also contains another opportunity, this one for models and skin designers:
We are issuing an open call for skin designs as well as models. Come and model your own new skin if you like, as well. Your beautiful skin design may be just the one to make someone feel less self-conscious about being bald.
All skins exhibited in the show will be gathered and distributed at this year’s Skin Burn event, so they must be full permissions. Remember this is a gifting event, full of Colour and Design. Go Crazy!
The Skin Burn Fashion show will take place on Sunday July 3rd, 2016 at 16:00 SLT, those wishing to participate should IM Daark Gothly in-world.
