Core principles

Winter Wonderburn is based on 12 principles which are inspired from the core principles of Burning Man.

Self Expression

Be your beautifully you! Express yourself and feel happy and pretty the way you want to. 

Self Reliance

Take good care of yourself and others and bring whatever you need. If you don’t bring it, it won’t be there.


Winter Wonderburn is made by you. We make this event together. Without you, no Winter Wonderburn. You want something to happen? Create it! There are no spectators, only participants.

Leave no trace

Everything you bring with you, will need to be brought back by you. We leave nothing, only footprints. 

No commerce

Leave your money in your wallet, you don’t need it here!


The act of gifting is an act of love. Sharing is always better. Gifting does not require a gift in return or an exchange for something of equal value.


Everyone is welcome! We welcome and respect everyone who wants to be part of it.


We co-operate to create! Let’s create something beautiful together. 


Live in the here and now. Take things the way they happen. Your experience will be far greater if you let go of your expectations and live the moment.


Giving is good, but sometimes it requires permission.  It’s best to use clear verbal communication to make sure everyone’s boundaries are understood and respected.

Civic Responsibility

We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants.

Each one teach one

The act of passing on knowledge is a beautiful thing. We can all learn from each other. Teach someone to understand the core principles.
