Meet The Teams
Burning Seed is created by you for you — there's no production company curating from up on high, or digging our ditches down below. It's all you and me. And our lead community organisers help create and maintain the infrastructure and systems that we need at the event, and throughout the year, by working in the following teams. Wanna know more organisational nitty gritty? You can read about Seed's legal entity, its history and financials here.
The Department of Planning and Infrastructure plans, builds and takes down Red Earth City’s basic infrastructure. DPI also oversees the Effigy/Temple builds.
