The Burning Man project is a significant influence on world participatory culture that is threatened by recent poor management decisions and ticket scarcity. Participants of this event create the event through their art and creative expression. Much of this art and creative expression is planned nearly a year in advance by group collaborations of it's participants based on an announced theme. Recently the managers of the event have announced that admission to the event will now be based on a lottery system with no theme in place. Given that much of the very attraction of the event is based on participants working long in advance in groups to create Burning Man this new system will unfortunately dismantle the initiative to create the event in the first place because there is no guaranteed admittance even to the most committed to creating the event. Given that certain teams of artists will be dismantled by this new system we feel that immediate action is required. We ask that the managers of this event return tickets to a first come first serve basis, work to alleviate ticket scarcity and work to find a better solution than a lottery.
