Production Departments

You, me, us - together we are the production departments. We collaborate, in order to make the burn event happen, before, during and after the event.

It can be at the gate, traffic, medicamp, media... and these are just a few of many many ways in which we participate.

We need you and us to make sure that the city will rise from the dust;

Join us!

Center Camp (Lounge/Salon)

Center Camp is the center and the heart and heart of Midburn. A shaded space to rest, meet, show, hold a workshop or give a lecture and also a little piece of nostalgia.
We’ll be happy to host you and provide you with the space to express yourself in any way you can think of.

Gate

We are the gate department, who are the first to welcome you and you are welcomed when you arrive at the gate to enter our city. The gate is the toughest department on the playa (You’ll get the hugs later, not here). Our job is to let the burners into the city, give them the desired bracelet and send them into the event when they are safe and happy.
We’re the face of the city, guardians of the walls, the angels at the entrance to the dusty heaven, the first people you’ll see when you enter the city and the last ones to wave you goodbye when you leave.
Curious? Great! Now ask yourself if you’re tough and sexy enough to be a part of our team

Location

The lLocatiation department, also known as “Mot” (מו”ת), is the architecture department of Midburn. 

Our temporary city gets the same treatment, if not better, than the rest of planning committees in Israel.

From architects to engineers, city planners to all kinds of designers - we are a small and efficient team that work on a daily basis to make our city rise from dream to reality..
We will see you off the beaten path of the playa, since getting lost in the streets of the city is also an amazing experience…

Greeters

This year we’ll decorate the entrance with colorful characters, in an ongoing spontaneous show of valuable greeting. In the show you’ll be able to play your amazing self, or that annoying teacher from 8th grade. You can lead the greeters vision to a shift that is all your art.
We are looking for performers and stage artists to join us and help make the greeters vision and dream come true in the upcoming burn.

Desert Collection

Midburn’s on site finance team is a small group of burners, who are in charge of integrating radicalism, community and money into one.

This year we’ll work in cooperation with the Ticketing and Gate departments before and during the event, to properly check, count and document all the way to the playa.

Some of those art installations will also reach cities and other spaces in Israel and the rest of the world.

Content

What is content? Content at Midburn is a radical self expression in the form of realizing dreams, the dreams of the creator and of the viewers and/or participants of the content. The dream can emerge in the shape of a crazy big, or minimalistic art installation. It can be an inspiring theme camp, or one that challenges you. It can take the form of an unbelievable art car or a live performance that will leave us speechless and full of energy.
Every dream wel choose to bring, is part of the event's content - Content that we’re all eager to see in the upcoming event.
This year, the art department and theme camps departments are joining forces and becoming a single department for Midburn 2021 - The Content Department! 
The department was built to gather all the content of the city into one place and to create a better spread that considers all the parts of the city.
The department will encourage interactions and cooperations between all of the creators, and build a mutual language under the united roof that is being built. 
The content creators will be guided by angels during every stage of the process, from filing the registration form to arriving on the playa. The angels will guide, support, help, connect and answer any questions and problems that might arise.
We’ll create a new and united community, where all the members are dreamers, performers and realizers of content in the city - together! 
Ready? … Here we go!
