The Burning Man Journal offers an ongoing, long-form series is designed to spark conversation about diversity, Radical Inclusion, and differences in the global Burning Man community. Topics include: where the lines are for cultural appropriation of art, music, and fashion; is “Why aren’t there more people of color at Burning Man?” the question we should be asking; how far the 10 Principles stretch beyond the playa, and what being a year-round, worldwide culture means for the inclusiveness and diversity of Burning Man.

Here are all the interviews to date, by order of recency. (And if you have a suggestion of someone to be interviewed for this series, please tweet it to @DominiqueDodley.)
