Burning Man rises from the desert-nothingness, transforming into a society that values creativity and self-expression, collaboration, personal and community growth, and open-mindedness to new ideas, peoples and states of being. 

It seems to exist as a parallel universe, or perhaps as a distillation of some of the best parts of society and humanity.

Are there lessons we can learn from Burning Man - ones that we can apply to helping children feel the power and promise of creative collaboration and expression of voice?
