AfrikaBurn is an event that spotlights creative expression, specifically the expression of its guests, resulting in an event that is driven by co-creation and participation. The annual festival happens in Tankwa Karoo and is artistically driven with visual works, music, costumes, performances, and themed camps. The dynamic group of participants come together for creation, as a result of volunteering and gifting culture.
At the end of April every year, the Northern Cape Province in South Africa hosts a vast amount of activities that drive expression. There are free art workshops, urban art and performance environments, and much more. The overall energy of AfrikaBurn is to be radically inclusive and accessible to anyone, embodying the value of "experience before theory, moral relationships before politics, survival before services, roles before jobs, a ritual before symbolism, work before vested interest, participant support before sponsorship."
