The AfrikaBurn Department of Public Works (DPW) is an incredibly hard working on site crew. We live on Quaggafontein in the Tankwa Karoo for around 2 months setting up and breaking down the AfrikaBurn event. The conditions can be harsh, the work is very tough, the food is fantastic and the people are incredible. Being a part of DPW is an experience that is guaranteed to change your life. If you aren't keen to have your life changed for the better, please do not apply. Once your application has been accepted and approved, you will need to commit to 2 or more full weeks on the DPW crew (excluding the event week) to qualify for a DPW crew ticket. You will also have a small amount of daily duties during the event, as part of the DPW crew.
