Thank you to all who nominated an incredible someone for consideration. You all made the decision so tough! After much deliberating and toiling over our fantastic set of nominees, we made our selection.
The 2015 Rock Star for a Day is Dani “Rat Lady” Moore

Our team is impressed with Dani’s caring nature while she educates about accessibility at Burning Man. Dani offers workshops on playa to help camps and art car teams learn about the myriad of ways they might inexpensively alter their projects to allow for better accessibility for all attendees.We are incredibly touched by how kind Dani is as she informs. No one is shamed for not knowing or thinking about accessibility issues. Dani knows everyone’s intention is earnest. She just asks Burners to keep accessibility in mind as they create our city’s experiences, art and interactions.
