About us

Kiez Burn is a non-profit event that will take place in a forest about 2 hours outside of Berlin, celebrating beauty and life in accordance with the 10 Burning Man Principles / 11 Kiez Burn Principles. The event takes place under the umbrella of Kiez Burn e.V.

Exclusively organized and run by volunteers, there is no commerce on-site, no exclusive entertainment acts and no borders. This creates an environment of a temporary shared community, with opportunities for deep connections and new discoveries. Kiez Burn is about interaction and interactive ideas, art installations, performances, workshops and lots of music. Every element of the event is created by you and everyone around you!

The motto of the event is “Participate, don’t spectate”. The event is one big creative space. Money not spent on production goes directly into art grants to help participants realize their vision for the event – creating installations, performances, workshops, spaces, and much more. We believe this synergy and emphasis on community already exists in Berlin, and can be enriched further through a creative supportive environment.

Since there is no commerce on-site, you must bring everything you could possibly need for a long weekend of fun, self-expression, learning and community with you to site (food, drinks, tents, chill out spaces, workshops, art, entertainment, clean up). Why not share your resources and start or join a Kiez (Camp)? Cook together, create an awesome space and share your vision with the neighbourhood.

Lots of exciting things are happening at the moment in prep for this epic event! Keep updated on our website (blog and newsletter to come soon). Check out posts from our vibrant community on our Facebook page.
