Burning Man 2018

Sunday, August 26 to Monday, September 3
Black Rock City

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.

Burning Man Project’s mission is to produce the annual event known as Burning Man and to guide, nurture and protect the more permanent community created by its culture. Our intention is to generate society that connects each individual to his or her creative powers, to participation in community, to the larger realm of civic life, and to the even greater world of nature that exists beyond society.

We believe that the experience of Burning Man can produce positive spiritual change in the world. To this end, it is equally important that we communicate with one another, with the citizens of Black Rock City and with the community of Burning Man wherever it may arise. Burning Man is radically inclusive, and its meaning is potentially accessible to anyone.

The touchstone of value in our culture will always be immediacy: experience before theory, moral relationships before politics, survival before services, roles before jobs, embodied support before sponsorship. Finally, in order to accomplish these ends, Burning Man must endure as a self-supporting enterprise that is capable of sustaining the lives of those who dedicate themselves to its work. From this devotion spring those duties that we owe to one another.

We will always burn the Man.

Barrick Gold Corporation has joined forces with Cisco, Switch and Unearthed to provide Nevada’s innovation and tech community with a premier opportunity to build skills, scale ventures and engage with great talent.

BattleBorn, a name inspired by the Nevada state flag, was created by the world’s leading gold mining company to infuse the resource industry with bold ideas and exponential technologies. BattleBorn includes a series of boot camps, a 54-hour hackathon, and a startup exchange, that will bring together competitors, observers, industry leaders, and startups.

Hackathon – A 54-hour high-intensity programming competition for participants, over the weekend of March 9 – 11, to solve innovation challenges in the mining industry. A panel of judges will evaluate the potential applicability to real-world industry. Prizes, totaling $20,000, will be awarded to the top teams. Silicon Foundry, an innovation platform with deep ties in Silicon Valley, will be offering a winning team exposure to its network and startup best practices.

“Hackathons like BattleBorn are a key initiator of outside the box digital thinking that will drive future success in the mining industry. We are delighted to support Barrick as they transform mining,” said Brad Bechtold, National Director, Mining Transformation, Cisco Canada.

Boot Camps – On March 3, challenge descriptions will be shared during a session where participants will engage mentors in a question and answer session. On March 7, Amazon Web Services, Barrick, Cisco, Silicon Foundry and Unearthed will lead a tech onboarding session. The workshops will provide participants with the tools and techniques they will need to succeed over the hackathon weekend.

Startup Exchange – On March 12, an exhibition-style event will be held to showcase early-stage ventures from around the world. The Startup Exchange is a platform for industry leaders to engage with these ventures and find ways to deploy their solutions.

“Globally, Unearthed is driving a mission for the resources sector – to innovate the way it operates and introduce new technologies with the ability to improve current practices. The hackathon events we’ve produced with Barrick continue this mission,” said Zane Prickett, Director, Unearthed.

The ultimate goal of BattleBorn is to have a distinctive impact on Nevada’s growing technology and innovation community. Individuals can get involved by competing in a hackathon, exhibiting a startup, learning about developments in the resource sector or networking with industry leaders.

All events will take place from March 3 – 12 at Rob Roy’s Innevation Center, powered by Switch, located at 6795 S Edmond Street, 3rd Floor, Las Vegas, NV 89118.
