OUR 5 JAM PRINCIPLES (ARE inspired DIRECTLY FROM THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF BURNING MAN):

RADICAL INCLUSION
ANYONE MAY BE A PART OF THE JAM. WE WELCOME AND RESPECT THE STRANGER. NO PREREQUISITES EXIST FOR PARTICIPATION IN OUR COMMUNITY.

GIFTING
OUR JAM IS DEVOTED TO ACTS OF GIFT GIVING. THE VALUE OF A GIFT IS UNCONDITIONAL. GIFTING DOES NOT CONTEMPLATE A RETURN OR AN EXCHANGE FOR SOMETHING OF EQUAL VALUE.

COMMUNAL EFFORT
OUR COMMUNITY VALUES CREATIVE COOPERATION AND COLLABORATION. WE STRIVE TO PRODUCE, PROMOTE AND PROTECT SOCIAL NETWORKS, PUBLIC SPACES, WORKS OF ART, AND METHODS OF COMMUNICATION THAT SUPPORT SUCH INTERACTION.

PARTICIPATION
OUR COMMUNITY IS COMMITTED TO A RADICALLY PARTICIPATORY ETHIC. WE BELIEVE THAT TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE, WHETHER IN THE INDIVIDUAL OR IN SOCIETY, CAN OCCUR ONLY THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF DEEPLY PERSONAL PARTICIPATION. WE ACHIEVE BEING THROUGH DOING. EVERYONE IS INVITED TO WORK. EVERYONE IS INVITED TO PLAY. WE MAKE THE WORLD REAL THROUGH ACTIONS THAT OPEN THE HEART.

IMMEDIACY
IMMEDIATE EXPERIENCE IS, IN MANY WAYS, THE MOST IMPORTANT TOUCHSTONE OF VALUE IN OUR CULTURE. WE SEEK TO OVERCOME BARRIERS THAT STAND BETWEEN US AND A RECOGNITION OF OUR INNER SELVES, THE REALITY OF THOSE AROUND US, PARTICIPATION IN SOCIETY, AND CONTACT WITH A NATURAL WORLD EXCEEDING HUMAN POWERS. NO IDEA CAN SUBSTITUTE FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.


A CLIP FROM A PREVIOUS ART JAM EVENT AT 176 LAKESHORE DRIVE:

Art Jam two was a roaring success this weekend past at the old site of Tweedsmuir public school. A feast for all five senses.
