I hope you’ve got a healthy supply of Aloe Vera… These men and women were so quick and witty that the very content of their biting conversations has lasted long into their posterity. How badass is Winston Churchill, by the way?

Bringing the Spirit of the Burning Man Temple to Northern Ireland

Every year since 2000, the Burning Man gathering has featured a massive wood structure called the “Temple”. Since its introduction, the ornately designed buildings have become one of the most special places for those who attend. In an environment that celebrates all kinds of radical free expression, the temple inspires reflection, contemplation and honoring. It is a sanctuary where those that come can heal, grieve loved ones or just sit in peace. After one week of its existence, it is gracefully burned, a symbolic “letting go” for some. Now, in its last day seeking funding through a Kickstarter campaign, the spirit of the Temple could be flying all the way to the Northern Irish town of Derry for March 2015.

The Artichoke Trust, a London based creative production company asked Temple builder and architect David Best to come to Northern Ireland and build a version for the community of Derry. Due to differences in religion and politics the city itself has been tense through the years, and while achieving harmony in such sensitive subjects can take time, the experience of the Derry Temple could help heal the past and gracefully enter the future.

The currently running Kickstarter campaign aims to raise the remaining funds for building and logistics. The project is already partially funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and will be entirely built by local Derry citizens under the leadership of David Best and his core crew. Check out the campaign video above, and send in your support quick – it ends in just hours.

“I find that making art together with people usually breaks down a whole lot of really radical barriers, I know that it does that.” -David Best

“Milhares de pessoas acreditam que ler é difícil, ler é chato, ler dá sono, e com isso atrasam seu desenvolvimento, atrofiam suas ideias, dão de comer a seus preconceitos, sem imaginar o quanto a leitura os libertaria dessa vida estreita.

Ler civiliza.”
