Ep 04 - WILL meets WAY at Burning Man
Burning Man is guided by the so-called "10 Princples," one of which is radical inclusion. What does that mean for people with disabilities? Especially at an event that spans seven-square miles of cracked desert, and the most common forms of transit are biking and walking. In this episode of THE INTERSECTION at Burning Man, we meet a Burner with limited vision and a camp for people with mobility issues.
"We're not caregivers ... We don't do it for you. We make it possible for you to do it." — Rat Lady
If you’ve thought about going to Burning Man and weren’t sure how to do it, check out Mobility Camp’s website. They’re always looking for new campmates of all abilities — especially ones with big trucks.
THE INTERSECTION looks at changing cities through physical intersections. This time we’re doing something different: The city is temporary and the intersections are conceptual. We’re going to a remote corner of Nevada for Burning Man.
THE INTERSECTION is a co-production of David Boyer and KALW.
Jonathan Davis is the associate producer. This episode was edited by Lisa Morehouse. And engineered for your listening pleasure by Gabe Grabin with music from Erik Pearson and Blue Dot Sessions.
