A brief history of our brief history

Blazing Swan was set up by a small group of people who had visited Burning Man in the USA  several times and have also been closely involved in setting up and organising regional burns in South Africa (AfrikaBurn) and the east coast of Australia (Burning Seed). Two events were held in 2013 (‘Ignite’ in Bickley’ and ‘Synchronicity’ in Mosman Park).  A search for a permanent location where the event could grow eventually led us to Kulin. a small town in the Western Australian Wheatbelt whose radical self expression and generosity in welcoming the stranger made us feel that we’d ‘come home’.  In 2014 the first Blazing Swan event was held beside Lake Jilakin just outside Kulin and since then the event has grown to involve over 3,000 people each year. We are grateful to the Burning Man organisation and community, and to the continuing huge effort of our volunteers and participants each year, and for the support of the Kulin community.
