Description

Enter the Multiverse at Southern Smoulder 2018.

Enter into a land of infinite potential. Expand your horizons and break free from the idea that there is only a single reality to explore. Come to the land where anything can happen, let your imagination run wild!

Set in beautiful native New Zealand bush on the West Coast, Southern Smoulder is an epic 3 day party based on the 10 principles of Burning Man. It goes from the 9th to the 12th of March 2018, three nights of bonfires, music and art. We will open a door into the multiverse, but it is up to you to choose what lies inside.

Join us and help to co-create this festival; bring yourself, your friends, everything you need to survive, and something awesome to contribute to the community. This might be an art installation, sound zone, performance, food and drinks, or whatever else you can imagine. Dream it, think it, do it!

The site- 'Fern Gully' is just around the corner from Maruia
(3 hours from Christchurch, 2.5 hours from Nelson)

10 Principles

- Communal Effort -
We all work together to make this party happen- everyone is a volunteer and no-one gets paid, so if you want to help, or have an idea for something awesome you want to bring or do, please get in touch.

- Civic Responsibility -
The burn is a do-ocracy, if you see something that needs to be done, do it. If you see something that looks hazardous, report it. If you see inappropriate behavior occurring, say something and stop it. We all look after one another.

- Leave No Trace -
This is simple; you pack out what you packed in, leaving the site spotless behind you. We aim to leave no MOOP (matter out of place) behind- this includes cigarette butts, feathers, glitter, glow-sticks, tent pegs, empty cans and bottles etc.
Please clean up after yourselves and others.

- Gifting - & - Decommodification -
These two principles link together to create a unique and radical environment. No money is exchanged on site, everything is given freely and unconditionally. We reject commercial sponsorships, transactions and advertising. Everyone brings something to share with others, and gift-giving is a vital part of the Burning Man culture.

- Participation -
There are no spectators at a burn, only participants. You are invited and encouraged to work, play and co-create the festival alongside us. We achieve being by doing- and through deeply radical and personal participation we can transform both ourselves and the world.

- Immediacy -
Think it, feel it - do it. The time is now, and the now is all there is. No words can substitute for this experience, and it is one of the touchstones of the Burning Man events worldwide.

- Radical Self Expression -
We offer ourselves as gifts to the community; using our unique gifts and personalities to share something truly special with others. Bring your wackyist costume, your most exciting talent, and do whatever you want (but please respect the rights and liberties of others so everyone can enjoy their experience)

- Radical Self Reliance -
Bring what you need to survive! At Burning Man that means all the water and food you need to survive a week in the desert; at Southern Smoulder we recommend a torch, sturdy footwear, warm and wet weather clothes, insect repellent, sunscreen, a sealable ashtray if you're a smoker, and anything else you'll need for a weekend of partying.
Use your inner resources - come prepared.

- Radical Inclusion-
Anyone is invited to join the community - our arms are open wide. There is no discrimination or judgement against others on site. We welcome the stranger in to become a friend.
