Kurenivka Camp @ Burning Man 2017
We are the first Ukrainian camp at Burning Man.
Ukraine is very radical: we have gone through Chernobyl, we gave this planet its largest aircraft and two Klitschko brothers. It is important for us to introduce Ukraine as radically good. This means that we should dispense with references to our radical achievements, but don't go unnoticed!

Cossacks, our heroic ancestors, really loved to fight. When the opportunity arose, the Cossacks gathered from all over Ukraine in a secret place and organized their life in a very strange way: think of something between a pirate's lair and the Shaolin monastery.

As burners do, Cossacks from different regions of Ukraine settled camps together, and each camp was called 'Kooren.' This ancient word is saved as the name of one of the most remote areas of modern Kyiv called Kurenivka. So we call our Ukrainian camp Kurenivka!
