BitF 2021 Cancellation

Dear BitF Community,

With heavy hearts we must announce that Burn in the Forest 2021 has been cancelled.

What is BitF?

Burn In The Forest (BitF) is the Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society’s (GVIAS) Official Burning Man Regional annual summer event.

  • We support the diversity and experimentation of experience and ideas.
  • We will create a Temporary Autonomous Zone where people may safely engage in new experiences without judgement.
  • We will strengthen existing friendships and build new ones, rewarding each other in special ways.
  • We are self-sufficient and leave no trace except in our memories.

Event Info

Each summer we build a temporary community over an extended weekend. Together we create a village and gift each other in many ways that express our creativity and play.

Our community is built on the participation of its members – from the simple exchange of food, stories, or a lending hand, to the elaborate construction of an interactive art project.
