ART JAM PRINCIPLES

Our ART JAM principles are directly influenced by the 10 Burning Man principles.

 

Radical Inclusion

Anyone can be apart of the Jam. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Gifting

Art Jam is devoted to acts of gift giving.  The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of the same value.

Communal Effort

Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration.  We strive to produce, promote, and protect social networks, public space, works of art, and methods of communication that support interaction.

Participation

Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic.  We believe that transformative change, whether in individual or society, only through the medium of deeply personal participation.   We achieve being through doing.  Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.    

Immediacy 

Immediate experience is, in many ways, the important touchstone of value in our culture.  We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society,  and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
