Mind Expansion

Page history last edited by Fannie Olson 11 years, 6 months ago

Welcome Neuronauts! Sign up for Mind Expansion space in our Big Dome below. Tell us the type of event you are planning, title of event, who is doing it, what day you want and how much time you'd like to have. NOTE: This is a Public Webpage. Feel free to list your name as a pseudonym (let Todd know your real name) if you don't want your name and talk to be publicly searchable. Thanks!


Right before the Playa we'll decide who gets Big Dome time for what, print up a schedule of events for the camp and turn it into some handout flyers. Maybe even a poster if we get inspired!


Event Types

Art Show, Comedy, Dance, Debate, Discussion, Food Fest, Future Salon, Meditation, Mind Expansion, Movie, Music, Performance, Yoga, etc.


Event Details:

          1pm - 5pm, Tuesday - Saturday (Time posted in What/When/Where).

Mind Expansions (1-3pm) are our name for illuminating talks, presentations, debates, discussions, meditations in the PlayaGon public space. Mind-expansioning, coolness, and interactivity are highly encouraged.

Future Salons (3-5pm) are for sharing visions of, ideas about, and/or questions about the future with other burners, to empower, create insights and reduce fear about our rapidly changing world. They are run by Future Camp and are half presentation, half interactive/small group discussion. Margaritas and mind-blowing memes are imbibed. Email johnsmart((at))gmail((dot))com if you want to do a Future Salon. You don't need to be in Future Camp to do a future salon but you do need to audition your talk to someone in FC. Go for it!
