Rosie Art Car Fundraiser
We did it
On 1st July 2018 we successfully raised £550 with 10 supporters in 56 days

We are hoping to raise enough money to make our beloved Fire Engine Rosie into work of art to share with all at Burning Man 2018

Last year in amongst the dust and delinquents rose a sight more beautiful than the burn itself…. Our beautiful Rosie the firetruck.

She very quickly became a much loved and treasured member of our beloved camp Platybus and The Band and brought Heaven and Hell to Burning Man 2017.

But like every fine lady “she ain’t cheap”…. She not only takes hard work but also funds to help her fulfill her destiny in bringing joy, community and love to all that see or set sail on her.

Thanks to an amazing amount of generosity and hard work, we were successful in our vision last year and got her out on to the playa for all to enjoy and we would love to do the same again this year.

This year our vison and creation by our very own incredibly talented artist Michael Whyte is one of an abandoned space ship lost in space 

We will create a retro-futurist rocket ship on the second floor. A derelict craft floating in deep space, like you are part of a salvage crew that comes upon a vessel lost in time. The astronaut captain has perished long before our arrival, but the service robot is still wandering the ship. 

And on the ground floor a chill out zone with a piano, fit for a king…. And stunning black light murals illuminating both sides. 


Any donation you can give will help towards not only getting Rosie back out on the playa where she belongs but also to provide and amazing experience for all…..

From the bottom of our hearts, Platybus and The Band would like to thank you for your time, support and kind donations… It truly is not possible without you xx

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
