This is Damian, many of you know me as the event producer of The Forgotten City up until 2015. Quite a few of you may know that last year's event was my last as event producer, yes I wrote on the Cathedral about retiring and went through the process of letting go.
Well, I certainly hope so, but that is really up to the community, sure every one wants to go to The Forgotten City but there has to be people who want to produce it.
Of course there is a laundry list of tasks that need to be done to produce an event. The very first requirement is a company with a bank account, and then permits and insurance can be submitted. Lets break this down....
The Company (LLC)
Previously I had taken the liability of producing the event under my Limited Liability Company (LLC). The problem with this (and with any single person producing an event) is that it makes it harder for anyone else to produce the event.
So, there is work underway to form an LLC by Burners for Burners with the one very important goal of facilitating events for the Las Vegas Burning Man community. In terms of the Forgotten City, the LLC provides a way to get event insurance and provide a bank account where ticket funds can go into and expenses paid out of.
The Forgotten City event requires a producer and leads in various departments. There is a list of tasks that need to be accomplished but it all starts with a single meeting of those interested in taking on a responsibility and we move from there.
To give you an idea on the number of department leads that are needed to make this happen take a look at the list below.
First up there is a public forum called Town Hall happening this Sunday 24th January at 3pm. Location is the Library by Cashman Field north of the highway on LV Blvd. (Google it). Show up, be informed and get involved.
Wait for some announcements on the facebook Burning Man group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lasvegasburningman/
