2017 Theme


The image that pops into your mind is probably those dreadfully angst filled high school dances you went to, at least that’s the first thing that comes to mind to me. I also want you all to consider other ideas, as this theme has a strong chance of being a very creative one. There will be so much information coming at you in the coming months leading up to Euphoria including information about funding for art projects. For now, and just for a day or two, consider this...

The last two years have been a huge struggle for our Georgia burns. After Alchemy 2015 the Georgia Burns had to move. We left our home that we had for ten years because of red tape and county politics. It seems as though the last two years have been a journey to find a place that fit us like Cherokee Farms fit us. That journey has been riddled by challenge after challenge. We were fortunate to have a strong leadership team who worked tirelessly to rise to the monumental task of moving land not once but three times, and they were met with obstacles time and time again. Finally after multiple attempts we found a new home nestled in a valley, tucked away between the foothills of Summerville. Through hard work and determination it seems as though at last we have a piece of land to call home for the foreseeable future.

To that end, Euphoria will be themed as a Homecoming. It’s time now to get back to the things we put aside in the craziness of changing homes, to go back to our roots. Home isn’t only where the heart is, but it’s where love plays too. Our love for art and the 10 principles that govern our burn. So bring your best ideas, your finest clothes and your awesome art.

We’re home now. Welcome.

“Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.” -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
