Another wonderful year at Burning Man has come and gone! The pack is stronger than ever with a total of six new wolves, Leith, Party Bear, Vanessa, Jenna, Leyla and Sphinx! What a wonderfully grounded and open year for these new pups and our old prowlers! The wolves were able to gift morning coffee each day at Sacred Spaces Village with Burn After Reading Magazine (the creation of two wolves – Jessi Sprocket and Derg Crissman).
We also had a truly momentous happening when Papa Dubz Wolf proposed to Sprocket at our dear friends, Kostume Kult, during DJ EZ Almighty’s set (and an epic dust storm). Huzzah for wolf marriage!
Now that BM 2012 is officially over it’s time to A. collect ALL THE PHOTOS! and B. start planning for next year! If you’d like to join the pack and help us make new, amazing art (kinetic vehicle? fire breathing totem poles? a giant moon dome?) then give us a howl! You can email PapaWolf at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us here or on the FB!
We’ve got some great photos of our wolf pack and our wonderful Esplanade camp. We had a really amazing time on playa this year and we had so many positive reactions to our art!!!!
Here are a few of our photos from the Burn courtesy of Tristen Dubz. You can see more high resolution photos of RxW at Rites of Passage here:
If you had a great experience with RxW at the Burn please leave a comment or contact us at Raisedxwolves2011@gmail! We’d really like to hear from you.
After pulling tons of all nighters, RxW has successfully finished all 22 wolf bikes, bike racks, dome skins, giant Egg sound installations, shade structures, bin packing and art making. We pulled together as the fantastic wolf pack we are and got everything on the PEX shipping container! Now all of our RxW goodies are headed to Playa where they will be set up at 8:23 & Esplanade for your enjoyment. The early arrival crew is getting ready for take off and will be heading out to BRC in a few days. It is finally time to debut RxW at Rites of Passage!
A short video of all the wolf bikes smushed into one enormous shape of steel.

Unpacking from PEX, scrubbing down and repacking for Transformus. We leave in 3.5 hrs for North Carolina and the beautiful blue ridge mountains. We can’t wait to gift Mysteria our Wolf Dome Coffee Den! I’ve been compiling delicious middle eastern tunes to sweetly serenade sippers during sultry sunrises. ❤ So Psyched.
Last night was our first ever fundraiser for Raised By Wolves–Cat Party!! Yeah, that’s right, to raise money for wolves we threw a party with a cat theme. It was an absolute roaring success! Bookspace, a burner owned venue in Philadelphia, hosted the event in their gorgeous spot. Silks were hung for our very talent wolf, Lisa and the illustrious Julia to perform daring feats of strength and beauty. All wolves rocked the bar, the door and the dance floor all night. Our resident VJ wolf, Geatan, killed it with his epic projections. We raged it till 7am and then broke it all down and got some Zs before heading to the Grimy Goblin Grotto to work on various camp projects. Completely epic, inspiring and beautiful. We can’t wait for Transformus!
Now that we’ve been back in the real world for a little bit, Dubz has been able to process all of our RxW Camping photos! Camping at the Farm was really wonderful! The space was practically dripping with spiritual energy and we were all able to really bond as a pack through play and work! The prayer flag workshop, hosted by Sprocket, was a terrific success. Each pack members creative energy and personality was synthesized into their magnificent prayer flags! Sprocket will be teaching another prayer flag workshop at Transformus!
On Wednesday a few of the wolves went up to New York City to the Kostume Kult Camp 2011 meeting at Madame X. The wolves introduced themselves to KK and shared our mission statement which was met with appreciative howls!!
Tonight Tigre will be hosting yet another mask making workshop at the Grimy Goblin Grotto! Expect more wolf headdresses in the near future!
Also RxW is heading to PEX Summerfest! You can read about us in the PEX Summerfest What? When? Where?! Come find our healing dome & howl with the wolfies! If you’ve got yourself a PEX map, we’re located in the top right hand corner! Owww Owww Owww!
