Big Imagination

A world where everything is possible

  • Who we are

    The Big Imagination Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We incubate bold, visionary projects that inspire the world to dream big.

    Our projects don’t fit into boxes. They rely on radical collaboration and community support. They provide opportunities for education and participation. They are experiences open to everyone.

    If we dream big, we can make the impossible possible.

The 747 Project

We are hard at work in the Mojave desert converting a Boeing 747, the world’s most iconic airplane, into a moving art experience for Burning Man 2017. Our plane is a 1985 Varig cargo conversion that once carried passengers in Brazil. Our goal is to transform the plane into a new kind of vehicle inside which dreams, inspired by the same spirit of flight that took the Wright brothers to the skies, can come alive.

Help us make the 747 a reality and share the experience with as many people as possible. This project is entirely donation-based and volunteer-led. Become a part of the Big Imagination community and support the 747 today:
