Introducing preHEAT 2023! 

The Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society is excited to present to you our first one day Burner event in Vancouver since before the pandemic!

Mark your calendars for preHEAT 2023 on Saturday, April 15th, 2023 @ the PNE Forum

3pm-6pm: all ages welcome
6pm-11pm: adults only

Tickets are available now!
Join us on Facebook and on the preHEAT 2023 website!

At preHEAT, all activities, stages, theme camps, workshops, art, and performances are independently produced by preHEAT participants and offered free of charge for the benefit of everyone. 

This beautiful tapestry of citizen contributions is what makes preHEAT special. Participants dedicate their effort and time to the things that they are passionate about, then build them, bring them, and let the others experience their amazing gifts. The preHEAT experience is the sum of hundreds of participants’ passions, laid out for all to experience like a fantasy carnival midway.
One of the most rewarding ways to experience preHEAT is to create something that stokes your passions, and share it with all of us! You can DIY and be your own rockstar, or collaborate and create lasting connections with other citizens!

Membership Is Free

But Some Assembly Required

We are guided by the 10 principles of Burning Man. These principles guide our interactions with one another and the environment and have a strong ethos of participation. As such, our events and the society are entirely dependent upon community participation.

Membership isn't required to participate, but members enjoy a number of perks including access to a community of doers and dreamers.
