culture

an experiment in a temporary community

we are accustomed to a world shaped by institutions, service workers and commercial transactions, we may not even recognize the signs of a true community

 

stories. in communities, people know by stories.

celebration. community activities incorporate celebration, parties and other social events. the line between work and play becomes blurred. the human nature of everyday life becomes part of the way you work. you will know that you are in a community if you often hear laughter and singing.

capacity. communities are built on the recognition of the unique abilities of every member. commerce and the public service sector outside of black rock city define us on the basis of deficiency and need.

informality. in the community, transactions of value take place without money, advertising or hype. care emerges in place of structural service.

collective effort vs. consumerism. community is cooperative, uniting us as varied members of one body. by contrast, when we consume a service, we’re made passive.

a shared philosophy permeates every aspect of our culture. this ethos is the living heart of our community, our conscience and our collective memory

our ethos

communities are not produced by sentiment. they grow out of a shared struggle.
