The Namibian Burn invites artists and participants to bring their unique skills, talents and creations, as a celebration of the human creative spirit as embodied in the ethos and spirit of our Burn Principles.
2022 Theme: 'The Mythical Art of Fire''
We follow the Burning Man Principles, which were crafted not as a dictate of how people should behave and act, but as a reflection of our global Burn Community's Ehos, Spirit and Culture of making the World a better place.
Applications CLOSING DATE: 12th December 2021
- Limited Numbers: Between unpredictable Governmental Regulations and a tremendous interest in NamBurn '22, we will do 'guarenteed tickets to participants' first, and 'general sales' second.

Ticket Sale Dates: TBA
All art pieces should be built on a standard size pallet or on a comparable size base.
Pallet Size: roughly 1.2 m x 1.2 m or smaller. It should preferably be no larger than a standard size pallet.
The pieces will have to be lifted using 2 strong poles slid through the pallet then lifted onto the burn-pit. Similar to a forklift, but using poles instead.
Art Height Maximum: Up to 8 feet (2 m) tall. It can be smaller though.
Materials: These small art pieces are to be made out of wood or safe burnable materials that do not create sparks. Pine/Pallet wood works perfect.
Weight: since the piece & pallet will be picked up using poles, we ask that you be mindful about how heavy your piece is.
All projects must be on site by the morning of the Burn start. The community would love to have the time to see and appreciate your art.
There is no limit to how many projects we can burn, so BRING ON your burning creations!!
Space, place and our support is there for you: Speak to us.
