autonomy with a Burning Man ethos and bent ::
The T.O.A.S.T. of Toronto
is not formally affiliated with the Burning Man Organization or any other official BM-related organization, but the T.O.A.S.T. aspires to reflect as many of the 10 principles
of Burning Man as is realistically possible in the default (i.e., non-Black Rock City / Playa) world.
