Welcome to Pyropedia!
Welcome to the Burning Flipside Pyropedia Wiki! This wiki has been created as a repository for Flipside knowledge, a practical tool to help plan Flipside departments, and basically anything else you want it to be.

Pyropedia means community-based. So get with the wiki-using!

This Wiki Should be added to and enhanced to suit the desires of the Flipside Community.

The Flipside Volunteer Organization   
==
  • The Austin Artistic Reconstruction, LLC (also known as AAR, LLC) is the legal entity that puts on and assumes legal liability for the event.
  • The Combustion Chamber (also known as the CC) is an advisory conduit from the participants of Flipside to AAR, LLC.
  • The Area Facilitators (AFs) act as Lead wranglers - they are responsible for facilitating interaction between leads in different areas, and also in understanding how each lead is going to be executing their tasks.
  • Leads head up a functional task for Flipside. These tasks are within certain areas.
  • Volunteers help build the city and make it go, often under the direction of a particular Lead.
  • Participants make Flipside go.
On Catharsis - Are you hot enough to burn twice?

Stay late and help Save our Site (and finish off Ice's booze). Consider the Leave No Trace ethos, meditate on the very meaning of MOOP. Become one with your inner volunteer. It's all at Site Sign-off.

Event Planning Project Management Knowledge Base Dingus

We're collecting information on how to run the various events that we run in an Project Management Dingus for Event Planning Knowledge Base. If you are an AF, a Lead, or a member of the CC or LLC responsible for organizing an event or a part of an event, check this to make sure you're not reinventing the wheel, and update it with lessons learned.

Looking for CC Minutes?

They can be found using the Event Calendar feature on the Burning Flipside website: click on 'Event Calendar' and then click on the CC Meeting entry to read the minutes! (Please be patient with us, as we might be a little slow to update)
