A Tacoma-centered group united first by their annual pilgrimage to the Burning Man festival and secondly for their desire to cultivate elements of the 10 principals of Burning Man into their local community and exemplify these principals in their day-to-day lives.
On the playa (in Black Rock City, Nevada), this group is known as the “Tacoma is for Lovers” theme camp, a sub-group of the 9-year veteran Seattle-based camp “Pixelstad”.
The theme camp is home to musicians, yoga enthusiasts, massage therapists, performance artists, photographers, comedians, and aerial performers. They have drop-in performances and yoga sessions. The philosophy is to have a welcoming space, where someone can see folks like themselves, and join in the many interests they represent. Their artists hit the streets and incorporate passers-by into their performances.
In the Seattle-Tacoma area they have become recognized for their annual fundraiser event “The Night Circus” which highlights the talent and teamwork that makes The Lovers an extraordinary group both on and off the playa.
