Emma Weisman

Burning Man Festival
Agency Relations Manager
Emma joined the Government Affairs department in 2018, a natural progression in a peripatetic career including athletic fashion retail buying and management, civil and criminal legal assistance, natural disaster response management, emerging agricultural industries consulting and management, and international nonprofit management. It's her privilege to assist Burning Man in managing relationships with local, county, tribal, state, and federal agencies in northern Nevada.
Emma first went to Burning Man in 2008, where she found many parallels between her own beliefs about art and civic involvement and the 10 Principles. She is a member of the Birds of a Feather art collective and a part of the theme camp Hearth, which merged with Awesome(ville)! and then splintered back out to become Awkward(ville)!.
Emma was raised in Vermont, attending the Bread and Puppet Domestic Resurrection Circus from infancy. She graduated from the Buxton School in Williamstown, Mass., and holds a B.A. in English Literature from Kenyon College and a J.D. from the University of Oregon. She will enter into a war of words with anyone who devalues arts high schools or liberal arts educations.
