Catacomb of Veils will be the largest art piece at Burning Man 2016 and one of the largest burned sculptures in the history of the event. Everyone participating in the creation of Catacomb is all-volunteer with a commitment to the transformative power of temporary art. – [SOURCE]
Part 3 of 4: THE TEAM
My daughter is a volunteer on the team creating this incredible Burning Man 2016 installation and I love seeing how empowered she is as she participates in the ultimate creative, physical and collaborative experience.
Being a part of the first build week for the @catacombofveils was UNREAL – I could not be more grateful. I can now add “table saw”, “nail gun” and “wood stretching” to the resume. @dansullivan__ & Team are legends. – Anna Thorsen
Collaborators aren’t born, they’re made. Or, to be more precise, built, a day at a time, through practice, through attention, through discipline, through passion and commitment. – Twyla Tharp
The first requirement of collaboration is commitment… It helps to have a champion. – Twyla Tharp
This project is a GORGEOUS example of collaborative practice, and at its heart: community. The team of volunteers cannot avoid being transformed through the process.
In the end all collaborations are love stories. ― Twyla Tharp, The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together
What does a day at the Catacomb of Veils build site feel like? From our crack-of-dawn arrival at Pier70 and morning wood delivery, to pouring ourselves into creating art for our community…. the dedication, the love, the generosity. We give our time and design expertise, but your donations make this happen. Every tax-deductible donation goes 100% to the materials, construction, transportation, insurance, and build-site rental for Catacomb. This is our COMMUNAL EFFORT together — and *you* are central to making this happen. – Catacomb of Veils
