Burning Man announces 2024 theme
Burning Man announced its 2024 theme last week, “Curioser & Curioser,” a phrase borrowed from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. An Oct. 27 post on the Burning Man Journal reads, in part, “The 2024 Burning Man theme celebrates puzzles without answers, embraces the irrational and the absurd, and invites the unknown over for tea. Because it’s in those timeless moments of not knowing, when we’re consumed entirely by curiosity, that we experience our most profound learning, growth, and creativity.” The full post is here.
