What is Sanctuary?

It’s a calm place of safety where anyone having challenging experiences in the dust (and at our events elsewhere) are able to be helped.

Participants can often become overwhelmed by the extreme desert conditions: wind, dust, soop (sound out of place), temperatures, intense partying and the stress of camping.

More info on Sanctuary:
